Title: CEO, Advocations

Bio: Lindsey Haaser is a social entrepreneur that's passionate about disability inclusion. In 2009, at the age of 25, she started Advocations, a disability recruiting firm. In 2015, Advocations narrowed their focus to autism and expanded their services to their Fortune 500 customers including Wells Fargo, Meijer, Boston Scientific, National Cash Register (NCR), etc.  In 2017, Advocations won the National Small Business Administration’s SCORE Award for “Outstanding Job Creator.”  

While Advocations has helped over 4,200 people find jobs, 19.2 million working-age adults with disabilities remain unemployed.  It’s like filling a glass of water one drop at a time, and it’s time to make a splash.  To do this, Lindsey is preparing to launch her second startup, Notable, a data-driven diversity application that we will discuss today.

Lindsey holds a Computer Science degree from the University of Virginia, Master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling from the Medical College of Virginia, and attends the Executive Program at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business.
