Global Disability ERG Summit

Global Disability ERG Summit

PurpleSpace supported by our Media Partner, The Financial Times is convening the world’s first Global Disability ERG/Network Summit on 15th October 2024.

During the Summit, we will:

• Convene disability ERG / Network leaders and key stakeholders at a ‘free-at-source’ hybrid global event.
• Determine the top three strategic drivers of workplace equity as expressed directly by people with disabilities – that, if tackled, would result in lasting change in the employment prospects of employees with disabilities.
• Connect with groups of disability ERG / Network leaders via supported ERG hub events around the globe.
• Hold an in person 'Anchor' event for 100 people at the Financial Times Headquarters in London.

This summit is likely to be of interest to:

• Global and regional Disability ERG / Network leaders.
• Disability ERG / Network leads responsible for single country networks.
• ERG / Network leads from disability/ illness sub-groups such as but not limited to neurodivergence, cancer survivors, mental heath groups, etc.
• Disability ERG / Network leaders from private and public sectors including government departments, the public sector such as, local authorities, universities, health, police, fire services as well as charities and NGOs.
• Executive disability sponsors and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion leads with responsibility for disability inclusion.

Expected global impact
