Name of Strategic Partner Sponsor: Mark Hodgkinson, CEO, Scope

And campaign relentlessly to create a fairer society."
Reason for becoming a PurpleSpace Strategic Partner
Disabled people are massively under-represented in all walks of life. From accessibility on the high street to representation on our screens, in business and public life. We must urgently improve this. We all have a role to play – businesses, charities, government, and disabled people’s organisations. By partnering with PurpleSpace we have a unique opportunity to amplify our voices and harness the collective power of our business networks to create sustainable change with and for disabled people.
Mark Hodgkinson, CEO, Scope said: "Life is much tougher than it needs to be for disabled people. There are a million disabled people who want to work but are not given the opportunity to do so. Scope are here to end inequality for disabled people. By working with PurpleSpace, together we will make a difference."
