“Inspiration porn” and a charity mindset have a pernicious way of limiting understanding of the power and potential of people with disabilities. 25% of today’s 20 year-olds will have a disability before they retire and the global population of individuals with disabilities is already over a billion people. Beyond charity or checking a box - engaging people with various abilities does more than enhance your business. It’s a necessary investment in your company’s future success. Our panelist seek to overcome the discomfort barrier and reach the practical potential. Come for a reality check to see people with disabilities as human beings and understand the value they bring to the workplace.
