"Windmills" is a high-impact attitudinal training program that integrates disability into the spectrum of diversity awareness.  Many organizations would like to employ persons with disabilities but find that fears, biases and myths create barriers in the hiring process. The training focuses on attitudes and human factors, but it also concerns issues including legal requirements and accommodation. The modules primarily consist of exercises relevant to the everyday world of work to which participants can relate and then carry out in their every day work. The Windmills program also incorporates language and requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
