The article “A Chance to See Disabilities as Assets” discusses issues involving disabilities in the workplace. Similarly to the reading by Douglas Baynton, this article discusses the changes that need to be made in our culture when it involves disability and how the term is defined among society. Women and African Americans were seen as unequal’s to men in the readings, whereas the people in this article are viewed as unequal to their competitors.
The cultural aspect is an article written in the New York Times.

What approaches can be made to help improve equality among people with disabilities in the workplace?
