Business Disability Forum (BDF) will be debating how the changes of the last year have impacted on disabled people and what this means for employers, businesses and wider society at its annual conference.
Disability: What’s New, What’s Next is a one-day online event on 30 June sponsored by BDF Partner, HSBC.
The conference will consider how the ‘newest normal’ will work for disabled people and what this means for the disability inclusion agenda.
Themes will include the role of disability within intersectionality, perceptions of disability versus reality, and what the future holds for disability and diversity.
Guest speakers include actress, presenter, and disability activist, Samantha Renke, and Tolu Oke from Amazon, who will be joining Dennis Howard from Coutts, LaMondre Pough, CEO of Billion Strong, and colleagues from Burberry and HSBC to discuss whether the 2020s is the decade of disability and diversity.
Diane Lightfoot, CEO of Business Disability Forum, said: “We are living through a time of great change. This has had and will continue to have a huge impact on the lives of disabled people and the way that society perceives and responds to disability.
“Our annual conference is an opportunity for businesses and employers to share experiences and learnings, to take stock, and to plan for a more inclusive future.”
