WeCo Accessibility Services:
Who we are and what we do
Accessibility starts with understanding, that’s why WeCo provides usability-based training and testing services for organizations and businesses concerned about IT accessibility, including Section 508, ADA or WCAG requirements. Whether your group is new to accessibility, or expanding present practices to move beyond software and include input from the end-user, our services help you bring meaningful accessibility to life.
What makes WeCo different?
WeCo’s service are focused on giving our clients access/feedback from actual users who live with disabilities. As a mission-based forprofit company, 90% of our staff team live with a disability. This means that WeCo is a place where talented individuals, who are often overlooked by traditional work environments, can grow and contribute.
WeCo is Ready for Disability Employment Awareness Month!
At WeCo, what people bring to the table has always been more important than how they roll or walk up to it. That’s why we’re excited to promote the US Department of Labor’s theme for this year’s 70th anniversary Disability Employment Awareness Month: “My disability is one part of who I am. At work, it’s what people can do that matters.”
Watch this area of our website for announcements of events, information and more about October’s Disability Employment Awareness Month!

Hiring Professionals Who Live With Disabilities:
One Employer’s Journey
Wednesday, October 28 10:30-11:30 a.m. CST
It’s not uncommon for WeCo staff team members to hear from other organizations we work with, “We could never employ people living with disabilities, like you do. We don’t have: the funds/the expertise/the equipment/the time.”
In this webinar, learn how WeCo challenged a business they subcontract with to hire one of our staff team members who lives with blindness, to assist them in project management, and discover what they learned in the process!
You’ll also hear from WeCo’s President, Lynn Wehrman, regarding how she and her staff manage a growing virtual and physical office while accommodating the needs of staff and contractors who live with one or more disability.
We’ll also feature disability employment experts to point you towards free resources and map out positive steps to create an inclusive employment environment which includes professionals living with disabilities!
Featured Speakers: WeCo President, Lynn Wehrman, and NEKA Creative Marketing President, Rosemary Ugboajah and a representative from Minnesota’s State Services for the Blind.
