At IBM, disabled workers contribute millions to the bottom line, and provide a crucial point of view for a company that makes and sells technology for people with disabilities. "We consider diversity strategic to our organization," says Jim Sinocchi, director of diversity communications at IBM, who is a paraplegic. "We don't hire people who are disabled just because it's a nice thing to do. We do it because it's the right thing to do from a business standpoint."
