Global Taskforce Programme


As part of its suite of membership offerings, bdi is now giving businesses the opportunity to join functional global Taskforces focused on developing and delivering best practices in accessibility and inclusion within specific functional areas. These Taskforces will enable functional leaders and experts to drive systemic improvement across their spheres of influence at global, regional, and national levels.

The first Taskforce in the programme is Procurement (please select below), with later offerings likely to include Properties and Facilities, Customers, Recruitment, and Workplace Adjustments, among others.
