Pride Mobility/Quantum Rehab recently completed the United Spinal Association’s ADA Corporate Challenge. The company took the challenge and submitted feedback, along with a video, demonstrating their commitment to an inclusive workplace and how it is helping employees with disabilities grow and succeed.
The United Spinal Association’s campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of making workplaces, products and services accessible and welcoming to people with disabilities.
United Spinal’s ADA Corporate Challenge is a part of Roll on 30!, a larger initiative to celebrate the 30th anniversary (July 26, 2020) of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation and all public and private places that are open to the general public. Roll on 30! brings together United Spinal members, partners, and the larger disability community to strengthen the ADA through education, advocacy and action.
As part of the ADA Corporate Challenge, United Spinal developed a series of questions and answers that companies should consider in promoting an inclusive and accessible workplace for wheelchair users and all people with mobility disabilities, including:
- Is my company actively recruiting people with disabilities?
- Are my company’s technology, products and services accessible to employees and customers with disabilities?
- Do my coworkers and I need disability etiquette training?
United Spinal will be spotlighting submissions from companies who took the challenge, including Pride/Quantum, on their website and social media, showcasing how the companies are driving progress toward a more inclusive society.
