People with disabilities account for 15% of the world’s population, that’s one billion people, and yet, they are significantly more unemployed and under-employed than their nondisabled peers.

People with disabilities represent a driven, qualified and untapped source of talent for businesses and employers, who are recognizing that disability inclusion in the workplace represents a competitive advantage.

To address this changing perspective about disability inclusion and to help businesses and employers seize this opportunity, the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO) has partnered with Cornell University to create a self-paced e-Learning course, Disability in the Workplace: A Global Perspective.”

This 90-minute course is designed for employers and their representatives, such as HR professionals, to enable them to efficiently and knowledgably design and implement a disability inclusion strategy.

After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the business case for hiring, retaining and advancing individuals with disabilities;
  • Identify the related international regulations that support disability inclusive employer policies and practices;
  • Discuss the policies and practices needed within their organization to facilitate disability inclusion across the employment process;
  • Design and initiate a disability inclusion strategy unique to your organization.

Short videos of personal stories, views and experiences of international experts and people with disabilities are accompanied by checklists, interactive content, and quick exercises. Also included are a organizational self-assessment tools and resources for further learning.
