The Power of Disability Inclusion

People with disabilities make valuable contributions to the US economy. Companies with strong disability inclusion programs see increased shareholder returns and outperform their peers. To create a disability-inclusive environment, employers must examine the subtle messages that can cause employees to feel connected or disconnected, engaged or disengaged, included or excluded. Michael Murray will address these issues as well as unconscious bias and systems change from the perspective of disability inclusion.
