There’s a lot of emphasis on love this month. Millions of people around the country will be thinking of creative ways to show their affection to others. And if we take inspiration from disability activist Mia Mingus, one way we will show love is by actively creating a more accessible world.
Accessibility is about designing with intent to give everyone the opportunity to be included. It’s about making a restaurant menu available in Braille or large print. Hosting an event in a venue with a wheelchair ramp instead of stairs. Creating products and services that can be used by the widest possible population. And, being able to order flowers through an accessible website.
You don’t have to be a person with a disability to care about accessibility. After all, the latest government research shows that 1 in 4 Americans has a disability. That means there’s a very good chance disability accessibility will impact someone in your community, your workplace, your house of worship, or even your household.
Disability inclusion and equality is most effective when it’s a collective responsibility. When trying to create a more disability inclusive and equal environment in the workplace, one tool that will help guide your plan is iDisability®.
