An estimated 34.2 million US citizens have a disability, yet only 26% of people with a disability are known to be in the workforce. These statistics could change due to movements for inclusion and technology advancements. However, stigma persists regarding asking and answering the question – do you have a disability? This webinar looks at differences between self-identification and self-disclosure and sheds new light on how this sensitive question makes people act and feel.
