DDD is committed to a gender balanced workforce. As part of the recruitment process, staff proactively reach out to young women. Our human resources staff works to ensure that our workplace is welcoming for young women.
In addition, DDD’s partners identify youth with disabilities with the capability to succeed in our program. In Cambodia and Laos, DDD recruits youth with physical disabilities and our offices have made accommodations for wheelchairs. In Kenya, DDD recruits youth who are deaf or hearing impaired. We’ve partnered with a local university so that youth with hearing impairments can successfully complete higher education.
