Unseen But Heard: State Solutions for Non-Visible Disabilities in the Workplace

Only 4 out of 10 working-age adults with disabilities have a job.

Less than three years ago the employment percentage was more than double for those without disabilities, with more than 75% of people in the workforce. This gap needs to be addressed and policies need to be developed to help improve employment outcomes for people with disabilities.

That's why the national non-profit Women in Government has partnered with the State Exchange on Employment and Disability or (SEED) Initiative to launch a podcast about enhancing the lives of those with disabilities.

On the latest episode, a panel of policymakers discuss helping people with "invisible disabilities", those that go undetected by the naked eye.
