We all strive to make our content and services more accessible and inclusive for our customers. But how well are we progressing toward the equally important goal of welcoming the unique perspectives, contributions, and problem-solving abilities of people with disabilities into our organizations? What does “working with a disability” look like—for employees, colleagues, and employers? This session explores what it’s like to work in our industry while disabled, foregrounding the voices of publishing professionals with visible or hidden disabilities and of specialists in assistive technologies and disability inclusion and empowerment. We know that recruiting and retaining people with disabilities strengthens our organizations and improves our capacity to innovate, problem-solve, and meet our customers’ accessibility needs. What practices and processes foster inclusion efforts? How can you make a difference in your workplace? What does this mean for your organization’s hiring process, retention practices, and approaches to accommodation?
