World Institute on Disability

Established in 1983, the World Institute on Disability (WID) is a global nonprofit fighting for disability rights. WID focuses on research and policy projects that optimize inclusion, accessibility, risk reduction, and resilience. Additionally, WID is "one of the first global disability rights organizations founded and continually led by people with disabilities." The site houses various resources. For example, under the Digital Systems and Tools tab, readers can download EQUITY: Asset Building for People with Disabilities, an in-depth manual "for people with disabilities who want to move forward economically and bring the system along with them," and Make It Work: Disability & Competitive Employment, which "aim[s] to provide the insights, information and techniques necessary to become powerful, both in employment self-confidence and professional or workplace skills." On other corners of the site, readers will find similar guides geared towards healthcare, disaster planning, and event accessibility. Under the News tab, visitors can locate a variety of resources and readings related to COVID-19. To stay abreast of WID's latest news and projects, sign up for their email list (a link to do so is found on the Home page), or follow WID's social media accounts (also linked on the Home page).
