This is an infographic describing the progress made across the federal public service with implementing Nothing Without Us, An Accessibility Strategy for the Federal Public Service.

Title of the graphic is Implementing the Accessibility Strategy, Highlights 2021 and is displayed in white text against a blue background at the top of the image.

This image has a number of sections dividing it horizontally. The very next section down has a pink background with black text, which reads: The Accessibility Strategy was launched in 2019 to help the public service lead by example in accessibility and to prepare organizations for the Accessible Canada Act.  

The next section down has a green background with the following black text: The Accessibility Strategy has 5 priority areas:  Employment; Built Environment; Technology; Services; and Culture.

The next section is pale blue with black text. It displays an intertwined circular graphic meant to represent employees with the following text appearing beneath it: employees with disabilities are underrepresented in the federal public service workforce, representing only 5.2% of the workforce despite 9% availability. To the immediate right of that is an image of a roadside barricade with the following bulleted list: Accessibility barriers exist in key areas: Physical barriers in workspaces and service locations; Technological barriers in documents, tools, platforms and systems; and attitudinal barriers in workplace cultures, mindsets and behaviours.

We then move down to a section with a bright pink background and white text. This section is divided into three parts by horizontal lines. The first one on the left shows a graphic that is an arrow planted in the centre of a target. Below the graphic is the following text: New targeted inventories for careers in: economics and social sciences (EC), digital and computer science (CS/IT), Financial Analysis (FI). Moving to the right to the second section we find a circular graphic containing four arrows pointing to the centre. Below that graphic is the following text: 55 interns hired in 28 organizations through the Federal Internship Program for Canadians with Disabilities. Then moving once again to the right to the third part we find another circular decorative graphic with the following text beneath it: New development programs to increase diversity and inclusion: Mentorship+ and Mosaic Leadership Development Program.
