Learn How

I think it is very important to include people with disabilities in the work environment. Just because people with disabilities may seem different, we all need to feel like we belong to the community we live in. I believe our differences are what make a community strong!
Alisha Cloutier, Better Together Campaign

How We Help

  • Truly Usable Deliverables

    As a non-profit leader, partnering with LinkEd has been a true joy. Both Julie and Kate have provided LSS with support and planning assistance with the transition out of residential services for persons with disabilities and supported us in building new services expanding the groups of people we serve. Their knowledge of the multiple systems in Wisconsin and true belief in self-direction/determination was essential to our working relationship. LinkEd listened to our needs, partnered with us to achieve our goals, and provided truly usable deliverables that assisted LSS in moving forward with a firm foundation of service and training.
    Rita Wiersma, Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan

  • Collaborating in New and Exciting Ways

    Joe's commitment to noticing and then calling forth and connecting everyone's gifts (and reminding us how to do the same) is beautifully illustrated by his work in neighborhoods across North America. Theory doesn't shift paradigms alone. We need stories that resonate with our common experiences to learn to work differently. Joe's workshops balance theory and storytelling in a way that gives us practical tools for action and the inspiration needed to act and sustain our work. His work is inspirational: it is a call to action that I have seen energize and mobilize entire teams and organizations to collaborate together in new and exciting ways that strengthen the very fabric of community. Joe's time with us helped to build a shared understanding and common language around ABCD across all departments. He really helped strengthen the whole organization.

  • Recognized Leadership

    LinkEd is built on a foundation of the highest standards. Everything they have done has demonstrated the highest commitment to ethics, professionalism, and a commitment to positive outcomes for their clients, and ultimately for the people we all serve. They are innovative, excellent communicators, and help others create a collaborative environment. They are also widely recognized as leaders in the field of human services.

We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.
