Event description

Description

A room full of like-minded industry professionals, coming together to challenge the inequality of disabled people in the workplace.

Did you know..

1 in 5 people in the UK are disabled? Yet, a staggering 49% of disabled people still feel uncomfortable disclosing their disability to their employers.

A disabled person who feels supported and valued in the workplace will take less sick days, will work harder and will be your business ambassador.

Only 4% of reasonable adjustments have a cost implication. Yet, the lack of support in place for disabled employees prevents them from fully participating.

The Purple Pound (the spending power of disabled people) is worth nearly £250BN a year. Yet, businesses are loosing out on disabled customers due to lack of access and understanding.

Celebrating Disability would like to invite delegates along for a day of focussed learning, collaboration and talks.

What’s in it for me?

  • The opportunity to connect with businesses with similar ethos,

  • A place to share good practice and learn from each other,

  • Presentations and interactive seminars,

  • Support to come up with tangible goals to effectively influence inclusion and equality in your workplace,

  • Understanding of how to earn a piece of the £249bn Purple Pound,

  • Introduction into effectively recruiting and retaining disabled people.
