Competencies: Global & Cultural Effectiveness | Intended Audience: Intermediate (Fostering IED)
Workplace Application:
Learn why the changing demographics of the workforce is creating a demand for inclusive work culture and why organizations must turn toward inclusion in order to remain competitive. 

Research and data has proven that diverse teams outperform non-diverse teams. And since the disability community is the largest untapped pool of talent in the U.S., employers should be eager to hire and retain these workers. Yet, according to a 2020 Accenture study, only 1 in 20 employers were openly addressing disability inclusion.

So, how can organizations leverage disability inclusion to keep employees engaged and ultimately achieve broader business objectives?

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why the rapidly evolving workforce expects and values inclusive companies and how inclusive companies outperform peers.
  • Know the consequences of lukewarm accessibility practices.
  • Get steps employers can take now to support disability inclusion in the workplace.
