People and businesses are scrambling to adapt, but there’s no guidebook. The key to staying relevant will be to find new ways of thinking that will help you meet the changes ahead.

Disability inclusion = flexible thinking

Learning about disability inclusion can help. At its heart, disability inclusion is about flexibility. It’s about removing barriers to success. And with more change on the horizon, now is the time to find innovative ways to succeed and thrive at work.
