Just Released - Solving Florida's Labor Shortage: The Hidden Solution
Solving Florida’s Labor Shortage: The Hidden Solution provides an update to a 2019 report The Able Trust released
in partnership with the Florida Chamber Foundation. In our ongoing efforts to provide meaningful data and research,
we are releasing this new report to show changes in the employment of persons with disabilities.
Inclusive Florida: Powered by the Able Trust
The Able Trust supports Florida’s system of employing Floridians with disabilities — whether their first job or their last — by being the thought leader for disability workforce inclusion. A persistent workforce participation gap of more than 40 percent exists between individuals with disabilities and those without a disability. The Able Trust is working to close this gap through a new initiative — Inclusive Florida: Powered by The Able Trust. This program is a unique combination of research, outreach, and capacity building that will help strengthen our current system to ensure more Floridians with disabilities are able to enter the job market.
