There are more than 1 billion people - or 15% of the global population - with a disability, either permanent or temporary, including those affecting visual, mobility, hearing, cognitive, speech and neural functions. Yet despite the clear and proven benefits a diverse workforce brings, only 47% of persons with disabilities in the UK are in employment, versus 80% of the non-disabled population.
Being inclusive isn’t just about adapting physical spaces; technology literacy is just as vital for social inclusion. Organisations need to make IT accessible to ensure people with disabilities can work effectively. New legislation that came into affect in September 2019 has brought this topic to the top of the corporate culture agenda.
This exclusive event brings together business, IT, HR and disability experts to share insights into how to create a more digitally inclusive organisation. Attendees will leave inspired to drive meaningful change in their organisation with practical tips they can implement immediately.
