The Driving Force Community
The Driving Force online community is the first and only community to unite all voices from the mobility disability space to create greater understanding of how we can work toward a more mobility-inclusive world. You don’t have to be a driver to be a part of our movement — anyone living with a mobility disability and their caregivers are welcome to join.
Members will be invited to participate in surveys and polls so that we can collect your experiences and challengers, ensure they are heard and inform actions that drive mobility inclusion. Come back often to read the latest news about how BraunAbility and The Driving Force are driving social change.

The 2022 Drive for Inclusion Report Card focuses on the puzzling dynamic of a ready and willing workforce – people with disabilities - being overlooked by corporations who are simultaneously championing DEI efforts and struggling to attract, hire and retain talent. While there may be an increased amount of talk around inclusion in boardrooms, there’s not enough action.
