We are a social enterprise which means we operate like a for-profit business, but we are always accountable to our mission. It’s not about growing revenue; it’s about developing people and growing job opportunities. From production to leadership, people with and without disabilities work side-by-side to foster an inclusive culture to meet customer needs.

By 2026, MDI is striving to positively impact 2,500 lives through meaningful employment & related services.
We do this through jobs at MDI for people with and without disabilities, DPI–PWD self-disclosed placements, community placements of one day or more, employee related services, scholarships, Career Skills, and transition programs.
“Being different is important, because it would be a boring world if we were all the same. MDI makes me feel included by giving me the chance to fold different boxes.”
“Working here is so fulfilling. You get to embrace different people and interact with people from all walks of life despite their religion race gender or disability status. When employees share experiences about life, and the challenges people experience and what it means to be part of the MDI team, there is nothing better than that.”
“Here, my ideas matter. Even if they are not used, there's at least a discussion to find the right course of action. It’s a 'family-like' culture here, something I’ve never seen. Everyone cares about their job and for others, picking each other up when we need to.
“It’s important to anyone to have a meaningful life and feel needed. Having a diversified work force makes it a much more family orientated company.”
“Diversity gives people with disabilities a fair chance. I’m more comfortable at MDI than I’ve been at other mainstream jobs.”
“Everyone is equal no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, or disability. We’re all imperfect pieces of a puzzle, but put together, we make a perfect picture.”
