Our journey began in 2006, when our founder noticed the lack of support available to disabled university students in their transition to employment. This also meant that companies were missing out on exceptional talent. We were the first organisation to bridge this gap, empowering both students and employers. Our pioneering spirit continues to define what we stand for, a world in which inclusion is a reality, belonging is the norm.
Ten years after the Equality Act 2010 was the time to take an in-depth look at the way in which this and legislation in different jurisdictions was being translated into practice. What could and should be done differently? What is our role in setting the agenda for that conversation?
Our detailed work and in-house legal expertise, conversations with our partner organisations, students and alumni, brought to our attention that rights enshrined in legislation are not always being put into practice. We are not only addressing this through our empowerment training, but are encouraging employers to develop a best practice beyond compliance approach. This is our Next Generation Inclusive Thinking journey.
