Disability in general is commonplace in DE&I conversations, but intellectual disability (those with an IQ below 70) is invariably missed out. In this podcast, Dipak Natali, Regional President & MD of Special Olympics APAC, shares how those with intellectual disabilities can become valuable assets in the workplace and shouldn’t be left out of the hiring process. He is also joined by Dacki, an HR professional with Asperger's Syndrome, who is living proof of why employers should give individuals with intellectual disabilities a chance.
