bdi is committing to supporting senior leaders within the public and private sector to connect as part of formal, and informal, Taskforce groups focused on developing and delivering best practices in accessibility and inclusion within specific functional areas.
Experience has taught us the value of networking great minds together across industries to solve problems, to set standards and to drive systemic improvement across their spheres of influence at global, regional, and national levels.
Since 2016 we have supported the set up and running of the Global Procurement Taskforce. Chaired by Andy Horne, Head of Supply Chain, Shared Services / IT at EDF Energy this group experienced considerable early success developing and piloting a prototype IT Tender Tool for the purchasing of accessible IT. This Taskforce continues to function as an informal network of enlightened leaders committed to exploring and learning about the impact that Procurement leaders can make on the life chances of millions.
Our network of allies, clients and experts is broad and wide-ranging and we take pride in our ability to connect businesses and individuals to appropriate partners. We are well connected with fellow Global, Regional and National players and believe that only through collaboration will be solve the systemic challenges that restrict inclusion.
In a fast changing and unpredictable world, our primary areas of exploration and focus for 2020 are:
Properties and Facilities, the ethics of A.I. Recruitment, and Workplace Adjustment Services.
