We all know that diverse workforces provide strength and dynamism to any organisation, so it’s unfortunate that in 2020 there are still neglected pockets of our society that do not get the same opportunities in the workplace. Tracey Corbin-Matchett, CEO of Bus Stop Films, is looking to change that. Through the creation of unique stories told through the media of film, Tracey is tackling some of the bias and discrimination commonly felt by people with disability.
In this episode, Tracey chats about:
- Accessibility in the workplace, and how COVID-19 has the potential to change perceptions about the value that people with a disability can bring to any organisation
- The financial cost of the “Walkaway Pound” – the lost opportunities for businesses with poor disability awareness or understanding
- Tips for making workplaces more inclusive
“We all rise up together when we’re including everyone,” Tracey says.
