I am a UX designer and inclusive design advocate. I was first introduced to the inclusive design and accessible hiring movement two years ago, and at Mentra, I'm able to use my design skills to make a tangible difference.

Jhillika Kumar

Founder

Here’s an example of mine: My personal experiences with my non-speaking, autistic brother ignited my passion to advocate for disability rights and design a world where my brother can one day find a job. I am a social impact entrepreneur and speaker/advocate for disability empowerment.

Conner Reinhardt

Cofounder

I never understood the humanity behind the accessibility movement until hearing Jhillika’s story about her autistic brother Vicky. I saw a chance to contribute to real change in our society. And that is something I’ll never turn down!
