WHAT SHOULD [i] DO?
Q: I want to be inclusive in my hiring practices – what do I need to do?
A: Providing access goes beyond making sure people who use canes or wheelchairs can navigate stairs or doorways. Inclusive design means prioritizing access to technology, job-skills training, internal training for employees to foster awareness, and broadening talent recruitment practices to name a few. Organizations that carefully examine and enhance these areas will be well on the way to improving their inclusion of individuals with disabilities. Building a more diverse workforce can not only boost the bottom line, but also increase productivity, reduce turnover and create a better brand image.
