BCCT DEI Evening Panel Discussion - A Business Case for Disability Inclusion

In a world that continually strives for progress and equality, the importance of fostering diverse and inclusive workplaces cannot be overstated. As business leaders, senior management, and HR professionals, your commitment to diversity and inclusion is not just a noble endeavour but a strategic imperative.

Are you truly motivated to hire inclusively? Would you like to gain valuable insights and learn from organisations that have followed a clear roadmap to becoming attractive employers for people who identify as disabled and/or neurodivergent? If so, we invite you to join us for a compelling panel discussion titled, ‘A business case for disability inclusion’

In this illuminating event, we bring together distinguished speakers who have not just embraced the concept of disability and neurodiversity inclusion but have also turned it into a tangible reality within their organisations. Over the past 12 months, Kimpton Maa-Lai and Crowne Plaza have embarked on transformative journeys, implementing inclusive practices that have reshaped their workplaces and cultures.
