Why Mindset Matters: A New Narrative For Disability And Business In The 21st Century

“The story of disability inclusion is incomplete. The existing narrative about disability and business has been focused on the need for hiring, retention and career development. While these tactics are incredibly important, and in fact vital for the growth and evolution for full inclusion of persons with disabilities in the workforce, it is now time for C-level executives and management to take more of an active role and cultivate a new narrative to both augment and redefine disability in the larger context of business strategy.”

“It was not until well after my own practice began to flourish that I realized how astoundingly lucky I was. The unemployment rate for blind people generally is about 70 percent. Many blind and physically handicapped people who are pumped through law school struggle to find any kind of law-related job. What a terrible tragedy—not just for the lawyers with disabilities but also for the organizations that miss out on the creativity, inventiveness, and out-of-the box thinking that almost inevitably comes with people with disabilities.” - Ed Marquette.

Deaf And Unemployed: 1,000+ Applications But Still No Full-Time Job

Deaf job seekers with incredibly high qualifications are often passed over in the hiring process due to their disability being misunderstood. Employers often don’t want or know how to accommodate employees with hearing loss. This article discusses the need to incentivize employers to hire people with disabilities and create funds to help businesses afford accommodations and educate themselves on disability. #careeraccess #hearingloss #deafcommunity

Asking for Accommodations with an Invisible Disability

Opinion | Hiring People With Disabilities Is Good Business

“As a New Year’s resolution for corporate America, it’s hard to do better than to pledge to hire people with disabilities. Yes, we can do it because it always feels good to do what’s right. But now it turns out that reaching this next frontier for corporate social responsibility is also good business.” We love this piece from Senator Ted Kennedy on how hiring #PWD is good business!

Microsoft, Bank of America and CVS are just a few big companies that profit from their proactive employment practices.

Disabled People are Worth More Than the Hours We Can Work

JAN - Job Accommodation Network

A newly released report from the @JobAccommodationNetwork (JAN) says, "Of the 718 employers who were able to provide cost information related to accommodations they had provided, 423 (59%) said the accommodations needed by their employee cost absolutely nothing. Another 261 (36%) experienced a one-time cost. Only 25 (3%) said the accommodation resulted in an ongoing, annual cost to the company and 9 (1%) said the accommodation required a combination of one-time and annual costs.

"Of those accommodations that did have a one-time cost, the median one-time expenditure as reported by the employer was $500. When asked how much they paid for an accommodation beyond what they would have paid for an employee without a disability who was in the same position, the median answer given by employers was $300."

General information

CareerACCESS is a community-driven proposed program of reforms to the Social Security Administration’s Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI) that will provide an alternative benefits program for youth with disabilities, ages 18-30. This program would be piloted in 5 states with services and supports to propel youth into careers, enable them to build assets, and allow them to keep their disability benefits while they build their careers. The program will be driven by an individual career plan that will include coaching, counseling and employment support service. The goal is independence through employment.
