Diversability is a group founded by Tiffany Yu, a disability advocate, and the business is dealing with events. They're about meeting and connecting in person, either through curated events on our own, or partnerships with other non-profits. Companies who work with people with disabilities get in touch with them for event sponsorships, branded partnerships and speaking engagements.

Do you think companies should work with people with disabilities more? What are the benefits of working with other people?

People with disabilities should be given a chance to have a good job. They don't need our pity. For all we know, they're a lot more skilled than some normal people. All they need is a chance.

People with disability shouldn't be discriminated. They should have equal employment opportunity on jobs that they can handle. I believe companies have already started to embrace people with disabilities and realize their potential.

I've worked with people with disability in the technology consulting world. I'd say there really is no difference in the quality of their output. They are some of the best people I've worked with, even. Let's support and not discriminate them.

I agree with this but the business also needs to take into consideration other factors in hiring especially if it will affect cost and quality.

Disabled people also have the right to have gainful employment so business so provide the facilities and resources needed to make this happen.

A good reason a business should hire a person with a disability is because the individual is a good match for a specific business need. It can give you insights into how to serve customers with disabilities.

Most of you are for having disabled people in the workplace but you need to consider that it depends on the disability and it depends on the industry. Like with everything else, it would depend on the person's ability and not his physical form.
Disabled people do not deserve any more special treatment especially when it comes to hiring.

Hiring people with disabilities gives a business benefit to public, media and community relations. They also get tax incentives.

I don't want to go against the tide here but not all disabled people should be hired. Much like what Michael said there. Their own abilities should be considered and if it is at par with your company standard. You should let your business suffer just so you want to join the bandwagon and hire a disabled person.

There's going to be greater diversity at the work site so that a wide variety of perspectives are utilized when solving problems.

Given the opportunity, many disabled individuals will be extremely loyal, hard-working, punctual, peer and customer-inspiring employees who will remain in it for the long haul.

I agree with you a bit but you need to extend maybe the learning curve especially if the person was just recently disabled.

The developmentally disabled are grateful to have a job and do not seek new employment regularly. Think of the money saved not having to go through yet another hiring and training process.
