“Each piece of data is a little story. In 2021, Americans with disabilities were unemployed at double the rate of Americans without disabilities. That piece of data is a little story about people who are trying to get a job but can’t. Your company has a role to play in this story. Having an accessible recruitment, hiring, and onboarding process will make it easier for people with disabilities to get the jobs they’re seeking.”
