HR Trends: Finding Talent in Unexpected Places: Differently-Abled

Radiocasts | September 11, 2013 by Bonnie D. Graham

Today’s buzz: Differently-abled. Seeking unique talent to enrich your workforce? Diversity and inclusion could open that door. The experts speak.

Joe Gerstandt: “We talk about inclusion as if it were an attitude or a state of mind, but it is an activist thing. If you do not intentionally and deliberately invite and include difference in the groups and processes you are a part of, you will always unintentionally be exclusive. No hatred or fear required.”

Karen Russell: “In 1943, psychiatrist/researcher Leo Kanner found autism was identified in 2-4 children per 10,000. Today the Center for Disease Control reports autism spectrum disorders in 1 in every 88 children.”

David Hofferberth: “The 21st century professional services workforce demands the diversity required to innovate and execute. By tapping into a highly unique talent pool we can create and deliver solutions to problems we don’t know even exist today.”
