Summary 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 profes.
