Nathan Shearer

Nathan Shearer was a Public Policy Fellow with RespectAbility. He was drawn to RespectAbility because of its inclusive environment and its focus on employment for people with disabilities, something that he thinks is essential yet often overlooked. Given that people with disabilities are the nation’s largest minority, Shearer was proud to be involved with the excellent work being done at RespectAbility. He has spent most of his time drafting public comments on state workforce (WIOA) plans, offering suggestions and best practices for states to better include people with disabilities in their workforces.

A graduate of the University of Maryland, Shearer has interned on Capitol Hill and worked on multiple political campaigns. He plans to pursue a Masters degree in Public Policy and/or Public Administration.

Shearer also served as a Fellow during the Summer 2016 Cohort.
