A review, in association with the disability organisation Purple, of the current research and best practice in the field of disability with insights into what the future might look like for disability inclusion.
There is plenty of great advice available around the day-to-day, practical things that can make life easier for disabled customers or colleagues but there is a lack of information targeted at the senior leaders responsible for setting the strategy and changing cultures.
This led to Leading from the Front: Disability and the role of the board; a review of current research and best practice in the field of disability produced in association with Purple. The review is informed from personal experiences as well as that of other leading organisations who are setting new standards for inclusivity. It has been written with a board level audience in mind to reflect the importance of senior leadership in setting both strategic direction and the public agenda.
It is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to becoming a disability inclusive organisation – far from it. Every organisation will have its own unique challenges and there is no ‘silver bullet’. The aim here is to provide provoke further discussion and – above all – action.
There is still a long way for all of us to go but hopefully Leading from the front provides a good springboard from which to start or continue your own journey in this area.
