Create a true culture of inclusion

Although progress has been made around equality for many marginalized groups, people with disabilities are still massively underrepresented in organizations' Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts. People with disabilities make up at least 15% of the population, yet they are still too often overlooked. Many people with disabilities are highly motivated, create fantastic work, and add tremendous value to organizations.

Disability Friendly is a clarion call to businesses around the world to realize the opportunities presented by employing people with disabilities. It explains the potential of disabled employees, how to create a culture of inclusion, and, in the process, help people with disabilities become proud contributors.

In this book, you'll find:
* Concrete strategies for redesigning work and its processes to embrace all contributing citizens
* Ways to incorporate disability supports into a business' diversity and inclusion practices and initiatives
* Methods for reducing the massive cost associated with government disability support payments and repurpose these as investments in the human potential of people with disabilities

Ideal for executives, managers, and other business leaders, Disability Friendly will also earn a place in the libraries of Diversity and Inclusion and Human Resources professionals seeking to make an impact on their company and on behalf of a marginalized group.
