Why Disability Awareness Impacts Your Business
Often, disability is a 3rd or 4th priority for organisations when considering diversity and inclusion strategies. Nearly 14 million people in the UK are disabled and 80% of disabled people acquire their disability later in life. Furthermore, disabled people are intersectional. This means that just because a person has a disability doesn't mean they don't also identify as a woman, from an ethnic background, with a young family and caring for an elderly relative.
When you combine all this experience together, disabled people are valuable business assets within the workplace. As disabled people, we can bring a wealth of experience that can positively benefit the businesses and the teams that we work in.
Having an awareness and understanding of disability only helps to develop this culture of disabled people within an organisation. Ensuring that everybody feels valued, welcome and included.
