Truist Celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Oct 8, 2021 12:00 PM ET
National Disability Employment Awareness Month

In a world where, on average, 1 in 4 people live with a disability, Truist offers an inclusive environment for our differently-abled teammates and clients, including those caring for loved ones with disabilities. For example, our Empathy Lab explores the experiences of those with different abilities, including cognitive, physical and vision, to understand how our services can meet the needs of all clients. Our Accessibility Team finds the fight workplace accommodations for our teammates with disabilities or medical needs. In addition, we ensure a diverse talent pipeline through our inclusive hiring programs by partnering with organizations such as the Center for the Visually Impaired/Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, Disability Rights Advocates and Disabled American Veterans.

Most importantly, our teammates play a huge role in expanding awareness, understanding and support through our Capabilities Action Network Business Resource Group. They’ll host events to inspire, motivate, and educate our teammates in a safe, caring environment throughout the month.
