This month, Brendan Roach, Director of Strategy and Networkology and Lauren Pemberton-Nelson, Communications and Marketing Officer, places the Spotlight On Rob.
Watch now as they discuss:
- The achievements of the Ability Matters network - with tons of ideas that other network/resource group leaders can also apply in their organisation
- How #PurpleLightUp has supported the networks aims
- What Fujitsu is doing to improve accessibility in the workplace.
A bit about Rob Loseby:
"I struggled at school even being quite intelligent as the schooling methods didn’t support me. However I didn’t waste my ability to learn and have been storing up knowledge as I make use of my strategies to support me. I have had an interesting work career and have developed throughout this to not only develop myself but to support others. This has come about from my life in the Army. After the army, I switched roles and joined Fujitsu, working in IT. Being passionate about D&I I joined Ability Matters and have been granted the great honour of being the chair of group. This allows me to champion the rights of people with differing abilities, to ensure D&I stays on the boards agenda. I also coach and mentor people and fill my spare time support Army cadets, to allow these young adults reach their full potential and to reach the stars. I also to chair the Fujitsu Global Network for People with Disabilities. We have some major programs in the fire which we will be launching in the coming months and we will share these with the PurpleSpace community in the coming months."
