Advancing Disability Diversity and Inclusion Within the Workplace
Disability Disclosure: How Your Company Benefits
Creating a workplace that’s inclusive to people with disabilities starts with knowing how many of your employees actually live with a disability. But at most companies, only a small percentage of people who have a disability disclose this.
According to a 2017 study by the Center for Talent Innovation, among white-collar, college-educated employees, 30 percent have a disability. But only 3.2 percent disclose their disability to their employers. That means almost a quarter of your staff may have a disability that you don’t know about.
By attending our speaker series on August 4, you will continue to learn more about Disability Disclosure. Below, check out the information on our Speaker Series.
