How to create an inclusive workplace
An inclusive workplace for people with disabilities is a workplace that accepts and celebrates differences as part of everyday life.
It makes employees with disabilities feel able to actively participate and feel safe for being different.
Encouraging people to talk about their disability can help to create an inclusive workplace.
Taking steps for disabled-accessible facilities like buildings, meeting rooms, toilets, among others promotes inclusion.
Communicating using the right language makes a difference. For example, using terms like person with a disability, instead of a disabled person.
Being kind and willing to understand also helps to break the barriers for working with employees with disabilities.
