Despite the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act more than three decades ago and one in four American adults having a disability, individuals with disabilities today still face discrimination in the workplace, deal with inaccurate assumptions about their abilities from employers, are underrepresented in Corporate America, and have higher rates of poverty than individuals without disabilities. With this inaugural policy agenda, Disability:IN seeks to increase representation and opportunity for individuals with disabilities in business through the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, increasing access for Disability Owned Business Enterprises (DOBE) in supplier diversity, supporting individuals with disabilities who are self-employed, and encouraging self-identification in the workplace. Disability:IN looks forward to working with policymakers and business leaders to ensure the full inclusion and participation of individuals with disabilities.
