A membership platform where organisations gain the knowledge and resources required to develop cultures that are inclusive of disabled people in the workplace. By signing your organisation up for a membership, you receive access to exclusive on demand resources, live events and a community forum where members can engage, share and learn from each other.
There are many ways an organisation can support disabled people to feel confident, able and welcome to engage, participate and feel part of the workplace and the business culture. Some of these ways include:
- Understanding how the recruitment process can be more accessible for disabled people
- Having steps to follow to ensure every event held is mindful of different peoples access requirements
- Supporting line managers to know the resources available to them in order for them to fully support a disabled employee within the workspace
- Understanding the obvious (and not so obvious) physical barriers that prevent disabled people feeling welcome
- Feeling confident in knowing about inclusive language so that front of house employees can engage and interact with disabled customers
We want to help you achieve all of the above and more. The best way to support disabled people is by working alongside people with lived experiences to develop cultures that are representative of what people need, want and aspire to.
The Disability Inclusion Community can support you to understand all of the above and much more. That way, you can actively engage and welcome disabled employees and customers into your organisation.
Welcome to the Disability Inclusion Community!
A place for people within organisations who are passionate about disability developing inclusive cultures where disabled people can feel valued, supported and begin to develop a true sense of belonging.
When thinking about how to be inclusive of disabled people in the workplace, many businesses struggle to know where to start. This is because it can be difficult to articulate the reasons for being inclusive of disabled people. Without understanding the reasons, it's hard to come up with the solution.
Members of the Disability Inclusion Community benefit from resources to support them to articulate these reasons and to engage with colleagues and stakeholders that can help them answer the question. Once your organisations understands its reasons, we can begin to support you to move towards the solution.
