Understanding disability in your workplace

Woman taking notes during a conversationOne in five Australians lives with disability. This includes physical and intellectual disability as well as a range of mental health issues. So the chances are that Australian organisations of all sizes—from local small businesses to multinational corporations—will have people with disability working in their teams.
