Women and Equalities Committee’s Inquiry on the Enforcement of the Equality Act
Business Disability Forum is a non-profit membership organisation which exists to transform the life chances of disabled people. We do this by bringing business leaders, disabled people, and Government together to understand what needs to change to improve the life opportunities and experiences of disabled people in employment, economic growth, and society more widely. We provide practical, evidence-based, strategic solutions for businesses to recruit, retain, and provide inclusive products and services to disabled people.
We are committed to an evidence-based approach to developing our inquiry responses. To help us develop this response, we have therefore worked with 14 businesses and 89 disabled people. We spoke to both customer and employee facing roles in businesses. Although we recognise this consultation is pan-diversity, we have focussed our response on disability and disabled people’s rights.
