Disability in the workplace: making your organization inclusive for everyone
In the U.S., one in four adults have some type of disability, with mobility and cognition being the most common. Disability isn't always apparent, and stigmas can often keep those who live with an unnoticeable disability from sharing it openly with employers.
For many reasons, fostering a workplace that invites conversation about disability and accessibility, and is inclusive for people of different abilities, makes the workplace better for all of us.
Here we'll explore the ways in which people with disabilities are an important piece of the puzzle to improve the workplace experience, and how employers can use benefits and other factors to make their organizations and cultures more inclusive for all levels of ability.
