Share your experience with accessibility at work or school.
What was your initial gut reaction to this graphic when it popped up in your feed? Surprise? Anger? Apathy? Validation? A little bit of everything?
Here’s a question we ask ourselves a lot at The Mighty: How are disabled folks supposed to reach their full potential when their surroundings are inherently inaccessible — or even outright harmful — to them?
When we asked our community if their workplace or school is accessible for people who live with migraine, 49% of folks who responded to the poll said “No, if anything, it’s actively harmful,” and 36% chose “Meh, there’s room for improvement.” That’s 85% of responses to our poll! Only 5% said their workplace or school is fully accessible.
We’ve got a long way to go.
