Make it a business
People with disabilities are the largest underrepresented group after women, and yet it is little known that people with disabilities represent a larger consumer market than China. Disability is further a driver for innovation, as demonstrated by the development of SMS, telephone and the internet to help overcome communication barriers for hearing impaired people. At the end of this module, participants will recognize the added value of employing people with disabilities in terms of the talent pool, tapping into new markets, improved collaboration among diverse teams, and opportunities for greater innovation.
