Women with Disabilities and Adaptive Technology in the Workplace (2005)

Participatory Action Research and applied Principles of Independent Living - Full Report

This report provides an overview of a research project that examined the experiences and perspectives of unemployed, underemployed, and employed women with disabilities, and their knowledge of and need for adaptive technology. While sustained and satisfying employment and economic self-sufficiency are critical to the health and social well-being of all Canadians, study participants reported a serious lack of access to the labour market. This is despite high school, post secondary education and knowledge of how to use a computer.

This report represents the collaborative efforts of twelve women with disabilities from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, two Executive Directors of the Independent Living Resource Centre in St. John's, a university academic with the Division of Community Health at Memorial University of Newfoundland, and a woman with disabilities who is both a graduate student in the Women's Studies Program at Memorial University of Newfoundland and an active member of the Independent Living Resource Centre.
