Learning directly from disabled people: a toolkit for global business has been written by PurpleSpace CEO Kate Nash, OBE for business disability international.
The publication is designed to enable a global business to improve its ‘disability confident’ performance by learning directly from people with disabilities.
The toolkit – which includes case studies from bdi’s Founder members, GSK, Barclays and Infosys – explains how a global business can benefit when it learns directly from disabled people, whether they are customers, colleagues and potential colleagues, shareholders, opinion formers or valued stakeholders.
The publication aims to:
- help senior global business leaders understand why it is important to learn directly from disabled people – and how to make this happen as a matter of routine
- help managers create a framework within which they can learn directly from people with disabilities
- inspire colleagues with case studies from organisations that have benefited from the knowledge and experiences of disabled people
The toolkit can also be used to stimulate country-level conversations with individual disability champions about how a business, wherever it operates, can learn directly from people with disabilities.
