Inployable is the world’s first-of-its-kind employment network for people with Down Syndrome.
A collaboration between the Canadian Down Syndrome Society and LinkedIn, this new network will help to connect inclusive employers to people with down syndrome actively searching for work.
Over 50% of people with Down Syndrome cannot find paying jobs. By building this network, we are increasing the visibility of an overlooked and underrepresented workforce that can help to solve the current labour shortage.
This is the first step in a collaborative project that we at CDSS and LinkedIn are committed to growing with your feedback and support. If you are interested in joining the Inployable network, visit Inployable.com,

How is Inployable different from LinkedIn?
Inployable profiles have three main differences from a regular LinkedIn profile:
1. They are featured on the Inployable network.
2. They feature additional skill options more representative of people with Down Syndrome.
3. The Inployable designation pop-up tells recruiters as soon as they visit a profile that it is part of the Inployable network and provides key information for contacting the individual and their support worker.
What is the "Inployable Designation Pop-Up?"
Each LinkedIn page will be equipped with a custom “Inployable” button below their profile name. When clicked, the button expands to display key information such as the types of jobs they’re interested in. They can also add the Inployable photo frame, letting employers, HR departments, and recruiters find potential employees at a glance.
