Greater inclusion of people with disability in Australian workplaces

Greater inclusion of people with disability in Australian workplaces

Funding: Australian Research Council (ARC) - $200,000
Duration: 2018 - 2021

This project aims to develop a model of successful employment for people with a disability, identify sources of employer diversity that explain willingness to hire, and develop social marketing messages that improve employer attitudes and achieve greater inclusion in Australian workplaces. Workforce participation of people with a disability remains low. The outcome of this study will be more people with a disability and their carers gaining meaningful employment, with benefits including improved physical and mental health, social connections and economic security. It will benefit employers by creating more diverse workplaces and a broader talent pool, resulting in greater innovation and productivity.

Project team: A/Prof Melanie Randle, A/Prof Rob Gordon, Prof Kathy Eagar, Prof Sara Dolnicar, Mr Simon Watts.
