With 2.1 million working-aged Australians experiencing some form of disability, people with disability represent a significant portion of potential staff. However, they constitute less than 20 per cent of the workforce and under five per cent of leadership roles. Despite the unique value workers with disability bring to organisations, they remain underrepresented in leadership positions. As Australia faces its worst skills and labour shortage in a generation, it’s crucial to empower disability leaders to foster innovation and global competitiveness.
Enter the Disability Leadership Summit – a groundbreaking event to empower the next generation of disability leaders. This forum invites Australia’s top leaders to engage in brave, action-driven conversations aimed at transforming disability careers, progression and integration. Improving employment outcomes and socioeconomic statuses for people with disabilities can create a ripple effect, positively impacting education, health and social outcomes.
The summit brings together CEOs, disability experts, government leaders and prominent disability community members to discuss tangible pathways for change. Moving beyond rhetoric, this event aims to produce a roadmap for better outcomes in leadership and beyond. Join in taking action for disability leadership empowerment and help reshape the future of the Australian workforce.
The summit will be held in Double Bay, Sydney from June 13-16.
