⭐️️ #Accessibility is a path to freedom, independence and should be a basic human right.
Accessibility at #Work allows everyone the full human experience:
✔️ #Career dream chasing
✔️ True equal #Opportunities
✔️ The chance to climb up the #Professional ladder to success
✔️ A spot for the long overdue seat at the table
Consider accessible paths for these types of disabilities:
✔️ Visual (sight, contrast, color, font size, …)
✔️ Motor/mobility (wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, arms, hands, …)
✔️ Auditory (hearing, captioning, signing, visual queuing, …)
✔️ Speech (stuttering, mutism, dysarthria, …)
✔️ Learning/cognitive/neurological (dyslexia, autism, adhd, ptsd, …)
#Benefits of accessibility in the workplace:
💡 Drives #Innovation and #Creativity
💡 Increases business #Productivity
💡 Advances #Employment opportunities
💡 Promotes larger talent pool of employment candidates
💡 Expands #Customer base
⭐️ Fact. Without accessibility in the #Workplace there is no #Inclusion.
To be successful in anything it takes effort to broaden perspectives and understanding. This often takes a shift in mindset; it requires #Action and it needs to be repeated …. over and over and over again… until we get it right.
