Intro - Mobility Awareness

Headline 

 

Description 

Everyone deserves technology that makes them feel connected.

No one should feel excluded from our digital world due to a disability. That includes the 39.6 million adults in the U.S. with a physical functioning difficulty.1

Verizon is proud to promote National Mobility Awareness Month as we work toward greater accessibility today and every day.

  • We have best-in-class products and services available to assist customers with disabilities, physical or otherwise.

  • We offer career opportunities for those with disabilities in a diverse, inclusive and empowering environment.

  • And we’ve partnered with organizations that support and advocate for those with mobility-related disabilities.

Whether you’re a customer, job seeker or anyone else interested in Verizon’s efforts at accessibility and inclusion, please take a look at the information and resources below.
