Disability Inclusion Institute CONSULTING SERVICES
As an equal opportunity minority group, persons with a disability are not exclusive to race, gender, ethnicity, religion, marital status, class, region, or any other demographic.
Disability is a natural part of the human condition, experienced personally by nearly 20% of the U.S. population. Addressing and resolving environmental and attitudinal barriers encountered by those with a disability, is the business opportunity of this century.
Guiding the development and maintenance of a fully inclusive and universally accessible workplace, will position companies, academic institutions and other organizations, for long term success with both their internal human assets, and external customer base. There is a clear, direct line connecting the underutilized talent available in our population to improved products and enhanced results.
Consulting Services will focus on, but not be limited to:
o Culture & Leadership
o Enterprise Wide Access
o Employment Practices
o Community Engagement & Support
