Meet an Alaska Airlines leader with a disability who says he is doing what he was meant to do  

Steve uses his life experiences with deafness to lead major parts of his (and his team’s) philosophy, which helps others feel heard and validated. “I don’t normally like to toot my own horn, but when it comes to disability advocacy, that’s a different thing. I think it’s really important for employees to see that, yes, you can have a significant disability and be a leader too,” he says.
