In Australia, people with a disability are twice as likely to be unemployed compared to those without a disability. In fact, 50% of people with a disability are unable to secure ongoing employment.
One of the biggest barriers to successful inclusion in the workplace is a lack of awareness and understanding of people with disabilities, as well as misconceptions about what it means to have a disability.
The promotion of disability awareness in our workplaces is vital to creating a society where people with disability have equal access to employment opportunities, and feel valued and included.
