Event description

Description

Inclusive Boards commissioned a Survation poll of over 1000 UK based business leaders to gain their views about senior leaders with a disability. The headlines from this survey include:

  • Only 1 in 10 business leaders were confident about recruiting disabled people to senior positions.
  • The main reason given for being apprehensive about recruiting disabled people to a senior roles was the potential high cost of adjustments. However, the average cost of reasonable adjustments is less than £75.
  • Two thirds of business leaders surveyed said they did not know any disabled senior business leaders.

We have spent the early parts of 2019 developing a unique toolkit to increase the number of disabled people on boards and senior leadership teams. The toolkit provides insights, guidance and recommendations for Boards across different sectors to help improve their disability diversity, covering best practice for engagement and recruitment of disabled candidates as well as retention of Board members and senior leaders with impairments.

Join us at the launch event on Monday 9th September 2019 at the House of Commons.

Arrivals at 1.30 for a 2pm start.
