Budgeting for Accessibility

To ensure your production is an accessible workplace for people with disabilities, your budgeting process should consider funding disability-related accommodations that remove environmental and social barriers to access.

The term “accommodation” designates the various kinds of modifications that may need to be made so that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as people without disabilities to live full lives in their communities.

In 2022, Inevitable Foundation released The “Cost” of Accommodations Report. The Report examines the real consequences for disabled talent when their accommodation needs go unmet and demystifies the true financial cost of accommodations by creating the first set of budget templates and accommodation benchmarks for the industry.

Read the Report
The report — including the calls to action — encourages people to listen to disabled people. They will tell you what they need. They’re not trying to spend a bunch of money, either. They just want to be able to do their job and be successful.
