Making Connections, Creating Impact

December - Making Connections, Creating Impact

In December we will help you to demonstrate the impact you make in your delivery of a high-performing network / resource group - and encourage you to make even more connections in your work.

We will:

  • Explore why it is #Valuable to bring Disability to the Board Room and keep it high on the agenda
  • Highlight the 'stand-out" efforts of members in delivering high-performing networks / resource groups
  • Offer you the opportunity to engage with your fellow members and make greater connections through participation in the #PurpleLightUp

What can you look forward to this month?

One of our Ambassadors will kick off the month for us with a welcome in the Member Zone - and offer words of encouragement to the month ahead.

During the month you can listen to our new Podcast "#Valuable in the Board Room" where we will hear about the opportunities that exist to ensure disability is firmly on the Board agenda.

We also launch a new resource "PurpleSpace 2020 Impact Report" where we highlight exceptional efforts from among the PurpleSpace community in driving disability confidence from the inside out through the delivery of high-performing networks / resource groups.

And as usual we will have our monthly Spotlight On member interview by our writer Jim Pollard - and this month we will shine the light on a network leader who is making considerable impact to build disability confidence from the inside out.

December is the only month where we don't host a Member Zone Chat at the end of the month - we expect to meet you on the social media airwaves throughout the month as you take part in the #PurpleLightUp and celebrate the contributions networks / resource groups have made all over the globe. Have fun, and we look forward to working with you in 2020.

The work of PurpleSpace is based on the lived experience of disabled employees and our Leadership Themes are drawn by the exclusive insights of network / resource group leaders from across many sectors, geographies and timezones. By working with their diversity and inclusion teams, volunteers, allies and senior champions they are fast becoming a primary driver in building disability confidence from the inside out.

We are always looking for fresh ways to tackle old problems - get in touch if you have topics you would like us to explore, join us as members or drop by to help our work.
