July 2015 is the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This groundbreaking legislation provided an important keystone in America's commitment to civil rights. Despite 25 years of progress, people with disabilities still have higher poverty rates, lower employment, and poorer educational outcomes than those without disabilities. Hear what the Kessler Foundation and University of NH researchers learned from their survey of 3,000 people with disabilities who shared their workplace experiences. The learning from this National Employment and Disability Survey can provide new information and valuable insights to inform foundations' diversity and inclusion.
