Inclusive Workplace

There are an estimated 1.6 million Ohioans who have a disability. People with disabilities can be our family members and friends, but also our employees and job applicants. When our workplaces are inclusive of people from diverse backgrounds, including people with disabilities, everyone is valued for their contributions. OOD can help support your business to be inclusive of people with disabilities at no cost.
