Disability in America
Only 13% of workplaces have disability-specific inclusion initiatives. As a result:
More than three quarters of HR professionals primarily define disability as something that is physical.
More than half of people managers have not participated in any disability inclusion training at all.
Legal requirements of disability non-discrimination and accommodation are included in required training only about a third of the time.
