This work is about you, your impact, and your ability to influence and impact your organization’s culture as an Administration on Disabilities (AoD) grantee to promote a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace for individuals with disabilities. As we support individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain competitive, integrated employment, an important element of ensuring an appropriate job match is to incorporate the key ingredients of diversity, equity and inclusion.
The information presented in this tool will serve as a resource guide as you build on your organization’s vision for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). This tool is designed to guide you through your planning process by presenting examples, suggestions, and strategies to assist you in strengthening capacity building in linking equity in combination with a focus on inclusion of people with disabilities. This is not an exhaustive list nor a ‘how to’ document. Please consider this as a primer as you begin the brainstorming process on how DEI can look in your organization.
