We represent the world's most sought-after Deaf and Disabled content creators and work with them to increase disability representation, set new accessibility standards, and engage new audiences. Our work is grounded in sustainable, systems-level solutions that also include Deaf and Disabled people, employees, and intersectional perspectives to all strategies and verticals of business planning.
What Does The C in C Talent Stand For?
Disabled people usually do not have access to option A or option B, so we decided to create our own option: C Talent. In addition, C Talent stands for creativity, community, capability, curiosity, and so much more.
