Diversity Initiatives

Anywhere diversity programs exist for minorities, people of color, persons identifying as LBGT, martial status, religion, country of origin, etc…  I believe individuals with disabilities should be included in any diversity initiatives.   Often they are, but sometimes they are not.   Specifically my focus will be on diversity in the workplace.   I believe that an employer that hires a disabled job applicant is diversifying their workforce.
