Disability

Our goal is aligned with the Diversity Project to move the DEI dial by driving an inclusive culture that supports and celebrates disabled employees, which will lead to happier and more productive employees, who will thrive within a proactively inclusive environment.

Whilst there is a larger dialogue around intersectionality, one of our issues is the suitability and inclusivity of the term “disability”.  We have decided to use it for this workstream in order to align ourselves with key stakeholders’ decision to continue using the term when referring to people living with a physical or  mental impairment that has a substantial and  long-term negative effect on one’s ability to  work.

 

Our 2024 objectives are: 

1/ Continue encouraging member firms to sign up to disability practices and measure this effectively

2/ Support organisations by offering bespoke training to member firms around the topics related to disability

3/ Create a “support network” of individuals who can share experiences: 

4/ Continue raising awareness and having conversations about disability and inclusive practices 

5/ Continue with disability role models and allies 

6/ Increase engagement with the member firms to understand the support they require from the Disability workstream
