Description

Disability Confidence means empowering everyone with the knowledge required to be responsive to the broader abilities, competencies, and needs of people who have a disability in our workplaces. Understanding how to discuss topics involving disabilities, and how to address people who have a disability, is an important part of promoting awareness, equality, and creating a sustainable disability-inclusive workforce. Disability inclusion is a competitive edge for the future of work.
