Abilities Employee Network
Supporting and raising awareness for those with disabilities
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
The Abilities network strives to foster an environment that supports professionals with disabilities, and/or those who have children or other dependents with special needs, as they build their careers at RSM. It works to raise awareness about the unique needs and talents of individuals with disabilities and promotes fair treatment among all our employees. The network also supports recruiting and hiring individuals who will better our firm, regardless of their abilities.
The network focuses on three areas:
- Sensory: targeting individuals who are challenged with hearing, sight or other sensory needs
- Mobility and environmental: targeting individuals who require an assisted device such as crutches or wheelchairs, for mobility, and individuals with conditions such as diabetes or lupus, whose special diets or medications might affect their ability to reach their full potential in an office environment
- Cognitive challenges: targets individuals with autism, Down's syndrome, traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder
