Why advocating for work is important
The opportunity for employment is critical for all people. People with disabilities are underrepresented in many industries, including the tech sector. We know that representation matters. When disabled people advocate for work, they share the stories that are necessary to change their workplaces for the better. Only by working together to advocate for change, can we work towards more inclusive workplaces for everyone.
