On the International Day for Persons with Disabilities, the United Nations sat down with NOD President Carol Glazer to discuss the progress of the disability rights movement since Alan Reich, NOD’s founder, first addressed the UN General Assembly from a wheelchair in 1981.

Globally, one in five people has a disability, yet many in this large and growing minority group still struggle to secure employment opportunities. “We want to show employers that people with disabilities represent an untapped workforce at a time when talent is at a premium, […and without them] businesses aren’t going to thrive, economic prosperity as a nation and as a world is going to be impeded,” Glazer said.
