An Overview of Internal and External Disability Inclusion



> Kat: Our Accessibility Consulting Specialists work with our clients to operationalize inclusion by examining and recommending accessibility and disability inclusion policy and practices for both your company’s internal and external practices. Internally, WID works with our clients to increase their disability inclusion work practices, such as employment opportunities. implementing disability employee resource groups, accommodation policies, and auditing office systems with accessible technologies.

> Externally, WID provides consulting services that assist companies in targeting people with disabilities and the disability community within their marketing initiatives. We work with our clients to identify their market opportunities and provide guidance around messaging and imagery that is inclusive of people with disabilities.

> When aspects of an event are not accessible, people with disabilities are left out of the discussion and ultimately their needs and perspectives are ignored. To this end, WID assists companies that hold conferences, events, or trainings by implementing accessibility upgrades for both in-person and remote convenings that allow for greater participation and contributions from people with disabilities and disability community leaders.
