RantWoman needs to get one last National Disability Employment Awareness MOnth #NDEAM rant out of her system.

The bottom of this post is slightly edited boilerplate from all the job postins rantWoman looked at on a local employer's website. RantWoman invites her readers to consider all the different elements that a job applicant might need to write reasonable accommodations requests about.

RantWoman would really like to be able to say #inclusionworks especially since this boilerplate came from an organization whose central role is providing services to low income people and  people with disabilities. RantWoman is pretty sure that having some visible people with disabilities would help ensure that the organization designs services that better meet the needs of people with disabilities. But in the meantime, the boilerplate:
