Well, I'm out of the job market these days, but if I was looking for a job, and the prospective employer was a cute Asian guy with muscles, that would definitely attract me!

That is a good question. Sometimes, employers provide lip service to fullfill a policy of inclusivity and "diversity", or meet a certain quota of employees with disabilities. It is standard procedure (at least here in Canada) to state in the ad that they are an "equal opportunity" employer, and invite persons with disabilities to notify them if they require accommodations for the interview. Job seekers are in a double bind situation, and there is no right are wrong answer. However, disclosure of disability and its timing has a bearing on how your accommodation needs will be met and how the employer will respond to you. Now I'm talking pre-COVID, of course, but normally, you can decide to disclose on the application/cover letter (not usually recommended as it opens up the opportunity for the employer to disqualify you and there is no proof of that); at the time of scheduling an interview (not necessary unless you will need accommodations or do not want to surprise the employer by a visible characteristic that will detract from the purpose of the interview); during the interview (which could go either way - bring out the problem solving and coping strategies you developed to successfully deal with your disability, or switch from your strengths to your "weaknesses"); when you are hired (now you have a legal leg to stand on if the employer discriminates/terminates/refuses to provide accommodations); or when the disability starts interfering with job performance (not a good time to disclose because the employer may perceive this as being dishonest, and because he wasn't informed at the outset, the onus on the employer to provide accommodations is weaker. To answer your question, it is in the behaviours and attitudes , not the policies and words, that you will get a true sense of his/her openness to accepting employees with disabilities. Do they feel uncomfortable around you? Do they interpret accommodations as privileges? Do they educate employees on disability issues and foster a supportive environment.
