Inclusion of Ability

Inclusion of Ability means understanding the relationship between the way people function and how they participate in society, and making sure everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires. Also the differences is cognitive, social-emotional and physical abilities add to the layers of ability diversity.

Since approximately one-quarter of the population lives with a diverse ability in some way, consisting in a huge unemployed and underemployed pool of talent, organizations need to evolve to embrace such a diversity. To become truly inclusive, we need to understand that we all have different abilities and no one is the same.

 

By treating everyone how they need to be treated, we become closer to creating truly inclusive work environments where everyone can succeed.
