Disrupting ableism in the workplace

Sree Nallamothu and Fran Odette joined Five Good Ideas to discuss how organizations can get “unstuck” in their efforts to create accessible workplaces.

“Disability and impairment are not things we can avoid,” said Fran. “It’s just part of being human. If we’re lucky enough to grow old, we are going to experience disability.”

The pair provided five good ideas on how to apply inclusion and accessibility principles:
1. Assume anyone coming into your workplace has a disability.
2. Inclusion is about more than being nice.
3. Recognize language has impact.
4. Embrace intersectionality.
5. Make accessibility a core budget line.
