Our Work

How a global business performs on disability has a profound impact on both the company itself individual organisation, and on the role it plays in the global economy.

An organisation that is not confident about disability – confident in how it sources and employs talent, in how it designs and provides products and services, and in how it engages its customers – stands to lose out both commercially and reputationally.

There is a compelling business and ethical rationale for learning how to enable everyone to contribute to business success, including people with disabilities , and those not yet disabled. We can no longer afford the waste of human potential that results when we make assumptions about each other on the basis of labels, particularly medical labels (link to video?).

Few businesses truly understand the commercial benefits of being ‘disability confident’ nor how to achieve this.

What is Disability Confidence?

We pride ourselves on our ability to link together our extensive global networks in the private and public sector, to identify the right connections, and collectively create the most appropriate interventions to transform the disability performance of global business- whilste transforming the life chances of so many.

We know that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Just as individuals with disabilities differ, so do the interventions or resources that we co-develop with our clients and partners to enhance business performance and inclusion.

We work across diverse geographical, cultural and legal contexts to deliver appropriate tailored solutions that draw on decades of expertise working with commercial, governmental and philanthropic organisations.
