Building Diverse, Equitable, Inclusive and Accessible Workplaces for People with Disabilities

Research reveals that approximately 25% of adults have a disability. Despite the progress disabled people have made in and out of the workplace, there is still more we can do to ensure that workplaces are equitable and fully inclusive of employees with disabilities.

That is why SHRM, in collaboration with the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) at the U.S. Department of Labor and ABLE today, has launched the 2023 Disability Inclusion Pledge to give HR professionals and business executives the tools they need to build better workplaces for disabled workers.

Employing Abilities at Work 

The Employing Abilities at Work certificate is a multi-faceted program with the actionable knowledge and tools HR professionals, people managers and business leaders need to recruit, hire, and retain individuals with disabilities. Brought to you with an initial investment from the Kessler Foundation, this certificate program is completely free and open to all.
