Conscious disability inclusion strategies for DE&I and HR leaders

Did you know that over 1 in 3 people show unconscious bias against people with disabilities (including neurodiversities)? This is higher than the levels of bias on the basis of gender or race. And, can affect the productivity, engagement, and wellbeing of your staff.

Join our webinar to learn how you can combat this exclusion that prevents us from being as inclusive as we'd like. Hear from DE&I experts at Next Plc, Cundall - a global engineering consultancy - and Adjust Services - a neurodiversity training consultancy.

The webinar will include live captions and we'll share the recording and slides with you after the session has finished. If you have any additional accessibility requirements please contact
