2022 Drive for Inclusion Report Card
The 2022 Drive for Inclusion Report Card focuses on the puzzling dynamic of a ready and willing workforce – people with disabilities - being overlooked by businesses who are desperately looking for more workers. Many of these same corporations are also championing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) efforts across their organizations, but only 4% are including people with disabilities in their DEI work, even though it's the largest minority in America. To put it simply, the group that is everywhere is still being overlooked. Additional insights include:
- A sense of disability inclusion among The Driving Force has dropped steadily over the past three years, reaching its lowest point yet in 2022.
- People with and without disabilities work first and foremost for a paycheck, but those with disabilities are more likely to also work for the sense of accomplishment and social interaction.
- The interview process continues to be a barrier to entry for people with disabilities. Members of The Driving Force shared their top three hurdles.
Read the full report card, along with insights from forward-thinking partners at JPMorgan Chase and General Motors who are ensuring people with disabilities have a seat at the table. Please do your part to elevate the conversation around disability employment at your workplace, at your home and on your social media channels!
