Introducing ABILITY: Advance, Advocate, Educate!

You may have known us as IDEAL, a
disabilities advocate Employee Resource Group at AT&T. Our heart and passion for people with disabilities remains the same. However, our name is now ABILITY! Our
tagline is “Advance, Advocate, Educate.” We advance opportunities for people with
disabilities through our scholarship programs, mentoring circles, and
collaboration with AT&T leaders and changemakers. We advocate as champions for people with disabilities and partner with other AT&T Employee Resource Groups,
external companies, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations with similar
missions. Finally, we educate on disability etiquette. We illustrate how
individuals with disabilities navigate life at work at home, and offer webinars,
speakers, and support groups to broaden disability awareness. If you wish to
learn more about our mission, please visit abilityERG.org.
