[2303.05429] Supporting the Careers of Developers with Disabilities: Lessons from Zup Innovation

Software developers with disabilities have a hard time to join the software
development market. Due to the lack of diversity that developers with
disabilities could hinder innovation. In this work, we explore the Catalisa
program envisioned by Zup Innovation, a Brazilian tech company, aimed to hire
and train software developers with disabilities. We found that the program was
able to accelerate the participants careers, although some shortcomings are
still present.
