Is Corporate Inclusion Diversish?

Speakers

Caroline Casey

Here’s an uncomfortable truth – your company is probably diversish. That is – its definition of diversity doesn’t include disability. But if disability isn’t on your business agenda, then neither is diversity; 90% of companies claim to prioritise diversity, but only 4% actually do. Think you’ve got diversity nailed right? Wait a minute, didn’t you just forget about 1.3 billion people? Meet Caroline Casey. Launched in 2017 at One Young World, Caroline’s campaign #valuable aims to spark a new age of business inclusion that positions disability on the global business agenda. This long-time rebel is absolutely fine with courting controversy and even happier making news globally for doing so. Her latest act of rebellion: Asking 500 companies to put disability inclusion on their board agenda.
