People with disabilities are the next great wave of diversity in the United States and around the globe. In fact, they are the largest minority in America today and still growing, especially when we include maturing workers with age related disabilities and veterans with service related disabilities. Currently, in the U.S., this segment of the population has exceeded the Hispanic population by 5%. People with disabilities want to work and in fact, come to employers with education and skill-sets that make them ideal candidates for a great many jobs, especially so when utilizing technology which has advanced greatly over the years and can, in most cases, level the playing field. Not only do we grow individually, but America grows every time we’ve allowed another diverse group to be fully incorporated into our workplace and society.
