IncludeAbility.gov.au – is a website designed to promote meaningful employment opportunities for Australians with disability. IncludeAbility is championed by the Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Dr Ben Gauntlett.

The IncludeAbility website is part of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s broader IncludeAbility initiative developed to champion employment for people with disabilities by improving employment pathways, promoting access and inclusion, and changing the landscape for people with disabilities in the workplace. It aims to close the gap in the workforce between people with disability and those without disability.


IncludeAbility is designed to support the following:

  • Employers who want to create meaningful employment for people with disability and
  • People with disability who are seeking employment, developing a career, or considering self-employment.

Easy Read documents and an Auslan interpretation is also provided to explain IncludeAbility.

There are free, practical guides and factsheets on topics like

  • Creating an accessible workplace
  • Establishing a Disability Employee Network
  • Customising a job for a person with disability
  • Creating accessible and inclusive communications
  • Hosting accessible and inclusive in-person meetings and events
  • Hosting accessible and inclusive online meetings and events
  • Creating accessible and inclusive inductions
  • Identifying as a person with disability in the workplace
  • Finding accessible and inclusive employers
  • Finding and applying for a job
  • Preparing for an interview
  • Writing a resume and cover letter

IncludeAbility has an Advisory Group of Ambassadors all with lived experience of disability. The Ambassadors are at varying points of their careers and have different life experiences. Together they will support the work of the Employer Network, and IncludeAbility more broadly, as subject matter experts.
