How will the progressive policies filter down to day-to-day workplaces in reality?

About this event

in partnership with Disability Equality Scotland and Inclusion Scotland

Inclusion Scotland has a new term called ‘employerability’ that’s all about the ability of an employer to welcome disabled people as equal and valued employees and support their growth and development in the workplace. Internationally, there’s a push on companies to publish disability representation through the Valuable 500 to address very poor employment rates. Join the panel to debate the effectiveness of these moves and how will the progressive policies filter down to day-to-day workplaces in reality?

Chair: Gillian McKay MSP, Cross Party Group on Disability


Brian Scott, Glasgow Disability Alliance

Paula Gray, HR manager, STV Group plc

Gary McLean, Inclusion Scotland intern with Save a Life

Alex Wilson, Inclusion Scotland

Themed around the United Nations’ Sustainable Goals, we will also explore the impact of climate on other issues such as poverty and inequality.
