Business Disability Forum Global Conference

Business Disability Forum Global Conference hosted by EY and sponsored by Shell

Generously sponsored by Shell and hosted by EY

This event is now full. 

Our Global Taskforce is a forum that brings together people who have global responsibility for their organisation’s approach to disability inclusion.

Globally, an estimated one billion people have a disability. That’s 15% of the world’s population and for business, this represents a vast pool of untapped talent and customers. 

There is also strong evidence that disability and poverty are linked, with the World Bank estimating that 20% of the world’s poorest people live with a disability.

The potential for global companies to have a positive impact is therefore huge.

Join us on 11 February 2020 as we explore the positive impact that global companies can have on the life chances of people with disabilities around the world through disability-smart employment practice and service provision. 

We will explore the challenges of developing a global disability strategy as well as looking at the practical steps already taken by members of our Global Taskforce.

This event is for Global D&I leads and anyone who has global responsibility for an element of their organisation’s approach to disability inclusion. For example, global real estate or technology leads or global ERG leads.
