John Robinson is a vocal advocate for those with disabilities. He’s a congenital quadruple amputee, yet he still acts as an author, advocate, and activist. In 2011, he published Get Off Your Knees: A Story of Faith, Courage, and Determination. He is also the CEO of Our Ability Inc., a company he founded in 2010.
Why They Made the Worthy 100: Robinson has helped thousands of people also suffering from disabilities to become fully competitive workers. Our Ability does this through workforce consulting, workshops, and seminars. Robinson is also using the organization to build coalitions of New York businesses that want to support the hiring and engagement with other companies owned by those with disabilities. Most recently, Robinson launched two artificial intelligence products for Fortune 1000 companies designed to assist and enhance the recruiting of individuals with disabilities
