Disability Awareness Training

Regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation, everyone at some point in his or her lifetime can be affected directly or indirectly by a disability.

People with disabilities are not only committed employees, but also help build workplace diversity, create an inclusive community, and contribute to a strong economy through their employment.

With this in mind, BDI advances efforts by businesses and communities to work toward inclusiveness.

Disability Awareness Training:
This is a simple and effective way to expose groups large and small to the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
