LISTEN: Ways to ensure an inclusive economic recovery from the pandemic

An Inclusive Economic Recovery for All Americans, the latest episode of WGA’s Out West podcast, examines the impact of COVID-19 in the workplace on people with disabilities and ideas to ensure an economic recovery that includes all Americans.

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted people with disabilities and changed the work landscape in ways that present challenges and opportunities for disability employment. WGA Policy Associate Lauren Cloward speaks with Andrew Houtenville, Research Director of the University of New Hampshire’s Institute on Disability, and Jill Houghton, President and CEO of Disabiity:IN, about how the pandemic has affected the workforce and ways to ensure an inclusive economic recovery for all Americans.
