The solution is equally intricate — unfortunately, it requires much more than a simple change of attitude, although that’s a good place for organizations to start. Changing policy frameworks, building support networks, and increased awareness are all needed to tackle the raft of challenges disabled people face in finding (and keeping) employment. Especially today, when the impact of COVID-19 has left disabled workers at an even greater disadvantage than before.
