Four Generations in the Workplace: The Changing Face of Disability

Recently, there has been a great deal of attention to the fact that the U.S. workplace now spans four generations. How can employers ensure that work is meaningful and adapted to the needs of workers across these four generations? For the most part, disability has not been part of the mainstream of this conversation. Yet, disability issues are central to understanding and responding to the multi-generation workforce in several ways: The meaning of “disability” has changed significantly over time; the legal and policy climate of disability in the workplace has evolved; different generations tend to experience different types of disabilities; and with the aging of our population, more people with disabilities will be in our workforce. In this session, we will co-explore the multi-generational workplace and examine how employers can ensure that everyone can fully contribute their talents.
