USBLN in USA Today: More Businesses Are Opening Up To People With Disabilities

A recent article published in USA Today reports businesses are becoming increasingly accessible to people with disabilities. The 2017 Disability Equality Index (DEI), a survey conducted by the USBLN and the American Association of People with Disabilities, supports the data.

One in five people in the U.S. have a disability, which is why it’s encouraging that more and more businesses are actively including people with disabilities into their workforce, supply chain, and customer base.

The full USA Today article can be accessed here, and more information about the USBLN Disability Equality Index can be found on the USBLN Disability Equality Index webpage.
