I am an Employer, and I want to:
Manage diversity in the workplace

In this global economy, businesses need employees who easily ADApt to different situations and demonstrate the ability to think creatively to solve problems. People with disabilities, more than any other group, possess these unique attributes. To the employer, this resourcefulness brings the innovative thinking and varied problem-solving skills needed to address today's business challenges and achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
