Job announcements and descriptions can play an important role in creating a pipeline of candidates that includes qualified people with disabilities. When done well, these documents serve as the first opportunity to communicate a culture of inclusion and workplace flexibility. Nevertheless, job announcements and descriptions often contain language or unnecessary details that may prevent people with disabilities from applying.
Ensure job descriptions and job announcement postings are clear and include only truly essential tasks. See Encouraging Applicants with Disabilities: Job Descriptions and Announcements, developed by EARN (Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion).
