David Shurna and Kathy Martinez – TALK! with AUDREY TV

Working From Home Opens the Door to Employing People With Disabilities – TALK! with AUDREY TV

Prior to the pandemic, the disability community advocated to work from home, as a reasonable accommodation, and was often denied. Ongoing stay-at-home orders in many U.S. states and cities have normalized working from home and modified work schedules. Managers are seeing that being in the office is not the only path to collaboration and creativity. The new workplace environment is a ‘silver lining’ that may create employment opportunities for people with disabilities. My guests are David Shurna, No Barriers USA executive director and Kathy Martinez, Disability and Accessibility Strategy for Wells Fargo.
