Career Success of Disabled High-Flyers

by Sonali Shah - £29.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843102083 | ISBN 10: 1843102080

Career Success of Disabled High-Flyers challenges the assumption that disabled employees are a homogenous group and discusses important questions such as: What is disability? How do people with physical impairments define success? Does gender impact in the same way on disabled and non-disabled people's careers?
Drawing on in-depth case studies of thirty-one disabled adults who have been successful in their careers, this book suggests that individual traits and patterns of behaviour are key factors in career success, and shows that it is often society rather than impairment that hinders professional progression.
Providing role models and valuable insights for young career-minded disabled people, it will also help inform policy and practice in education and training about disability and equality in schools, employment, and society in general.
This book is a must-read, not only for people with disabilities, but for teachers, policy-makers, employers and anyone with an interest in disabled people and career development.
