What can YOU do?

What can you do?

It’s a simple question that can be answered in any number of ways. And yet it isn’t asked nearly enough in regards to people living with a disability and employment options. People experiencing disabilities can do much more than any of us often imagine, that is, when given the encouragement and opportunity to stretch themselves and learn. And this shouldn’t be much of a surprise given that is all any of us needs to succeed.

When those experiencing disabilities can live up to their true potential and actively pursue the jobs of their dreams and abilities, everybody wins.

What can you do?

When people are willing to become mentors and show others how to become better versions of themselves and learn what they’re good at, everybody wins.

What can you do?

When people who own or manage businesses take a leap of faith and challenge themselves by thinking outside the box to see where they can utilize the skills and abilities of people with a barrier to employment, everybody wins.

What can you do?

And when any of us really looks at another human being and recognizes and allows for the similarities AND the differences, we all win.

What can you do?

Everyone wins, because everyone is included and made to feel valued, important, needed, useful, involved and a part of something bigger than themselves.

The Campaign for Disability Employment is a collaborative effort to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities by encouraging employers and others to recognize the value and talent they bring to the workplace. In business, the investment that drives innovation is talent. The knowledge, skills and abilities employees bring to work each day are by far the assets that yield the most output over the long term. Whether good economic times or bad, it’s the organizations that know how to identify and recognize talent that are most likely to succeed. Through its national public education effort, What Can YOU Do?,The Campaign for Disability Employment reinforces that people with disabilities want to work and that their talents and abilities positively impact businesses both financially and organizationally
