Increasing pathways and opportunities for people with disability in the workforce (in-person)

The final report of the Disability Royal Commission made a series of recommendations on how to increase the pathways and opportunities for people with disability in the workforce. 
 
At our next D&I Insights event, we will hear what needs to change and how employers can do more to provide people with disability the opportunity to work, earn a living and participate as an economic citizen alongside people without disability. 
 
Manisha Amin, CEO of the Centre for Inclusive Design and DCA Board Member, will MC the event. Our keynote speaker will be Christina Ryan, CEO and Founder of the Disability Leadership Institute. As a leader in the Australian disability community for over 20 years, Christina will unpack the Royal Commission’s recommendations for inclusive employment. Our expert guest panel will share their lived experiences and expertise on how employers can play a key role in making change. 
 
Our panel includes: 
 
  • Christina Ryan, CEO and Founder of the Disability Leadership Institute 
  • Darren Fittler, lead partner in Gilbert + Tobin’s Charities + Social Sector group 
  • Amber O’Shea, Head of Strategy, Australian Disability Network
  • Catherina Behan, Group Diversity & Inclusion, People, Culture & Advocacy at Suncorp Group.
