DEIA: Expanding Career Paths for People with Disabilities

The value of diversity in the workforce has long been recognized and now the discussion around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has been expanded to include accessibility (DEIA). Unemployment and underemployment continue to be an issue for people with physical or neurological disabilities, though employers that include them cultivate better creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills. Let’s talk about pathways to hiring, retention, and promotion for people with disabilities.
