COVID-19 has brought acutely to wide attention a range of inequalities in working life, including the gendered household division of labor. However, it has also offered opportunities for more inclusive working practices such as home working. The support for a diverse workforce can be considered “diversity management” which attempts to harness the benefits of diversity for organizational gain. Through a discussion of the intersectional experiences of often marginalized employees, this chapter explores the discriminations reported by many employees. We focus specifically on disability, presenting historical and contemporary explanations of disability at work, with illustrative examples. This chapter concludes with suggestions for more inclusive practices at work to benefit both employees and employers.
