PurpleSpace Leadership Lessons 2023

The Future is Already Here

Throughout the course of a year we deliver our unique 'know-how' across 12 key leadership lessons. In effect, we have a hub of motivation, learning and development materials, working groups, publications, podcasts, webinars, peer leadership roundtables, articles and blogs for our community of over 2000+ members across 190+ organisations.

We are all about building disability confidence from the inside out and we believe that starts with individuals, Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)/ Network leaders, allies and champions. Individual and organisational confidence is the outcome of cultural change. Everything is designed to help you ensure that disability inclusion is at the heart of your organisation.

The more use you can make of your membership packages by giving many of your people access to PurpleSpace know-how, the better. It increases your chances of driving culture change.
