The unemployment rate for people with disabilities is twice the rate of those without disabilities. With one in five people living with a disability, employers who are not hiring people with disabilities are missing out on 20 percent of the population.

The good news is that the overall low unemployment rate and the advances in accommodations technology have had a positive impact on bringing down the unemployment rate for those with disabilities. No Barriers celebrates the value that people with diverse abilities bring to their communities and the workforce.

Wells Fargo is on the forefront of accessibility technology accommodations that empower people to bring their best self to work.
