Disabilities and Inclusion

Disabilities and Inclusion finds that 30% of college-educated employees between the ages of 21 and 65 working full-time in white-collar professions in the U.S. have a disability, according to the new, broader U.S. federal definition of disabilities (finalized in 2016, the definition now more clearly outlines what are considered mental health and chronic conditions). Yet they face significant challenges. For instance, many feel stalled in their careers. The report highlights ways employers can signal inclusion to employees with disabilities.
