Hiring people with disabilities isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also a smart business decision. Studies show disabled employees work harder, solve problems better, and drive more profit.

This short talk details the benefits of mixed-ability teams and shows you how to create one at your company. (Apologies for the low sound quality, and for the conference’s decision not to add captions.)
