Putting Untapped Talent to Work
Did you know that there are 61 million people with disabilities in the United States alone, yet people with disabilities are often excluded from full participation in work and life? Companies that commit to disability inclusion have, on average, 28% higher revenue, double the net income, and 30% higher economic profit margins than their peers. If your business doesn’t have an actionable strategy for disability inclusion, you’re leaving 26% of American adults — and the potential for greater revenue — waiting at the door. This course shows you how to integrate disability inclusion into the core of your organization’s culture, strategy, and daily operations, so that you can incite cultural change around diversity and inclusion and cultivate stronger innovation as well.Take the Course

what you will learn
- Understanding Disabilities
In this module, you will learn about the history of how people with disabilities have been treated and have seen themselves in America. Furthermore, this module discusses the different models of what defines a disability, as well as the different types of disabilities.
- Disability Etiquette
This module discusses appropriate language and terminology you should use when talking to and about people with disabilities. Personal anecdotes are used to illustrate the subtle and often subconscious incidents of discrimination that people with disabilities often face. As such, the module presents five core guidelines for disability etiquette with actionable best practice recommendations.
- The Business Case for Disability Inclusion
In this module, we discuss why companies should integrate individuals with disabilities into their workforce. You will learn that hiring employees with disabilities benefits the whole organization. We also explain the major benefits of disability inclusion, including increased innovation and productivity, improved revenue and employee retention, a strengthened brand, and greater community reach.
- Actions for Making Your Workplace Inclusive
This module provides strategic insights to ensure your workplace is welcoming and accessible to applicants and employees who have disabilities. These practices help to cultivate greater
diversity and inclusion at large, as most inclusion practices geared toward employees and job
seekers with disabilities have the added bonus of benefiting everyone.
- Accessibility, Adaptations, and Assistive Technologies
Our final module explains web accessibility, environmental adaptations, and the most common assistive technologies, devices, and programs that employees with disabilities might require, so you can be familiar before they are necessary. It presents your key responsibilities for digital accessibility as an employer and includes personal stories that highlight the human impact of physical, environmental, and digital accessibility.

I thoroughly enjoyed taking this disability course. I have a disability myself and I still gained so much from this course. I never stop learning about other types of disabilities and how to educate myself to be inclusive of others in the workplace and in my personal life. I appreciate the individuals who shared their stories to educate us all during this training course. Thank you!Courtney Poole Specialty Practice Manager, BAYADA Home Health Care
