Workshop 4: Closing the skills gap: making disability inclusion front and centre of your D&I strategy

11:05 am

By employing people with disability, businesses access a productive, safe and reliable talent pool — in turn, drawing long-term economic, innovation and inclusion dividends. Yet, low awareness about disability and available support means employers may overlook people with disability and miss out on their potential. How can Australian workplaces embed disability inclusion across all layers of the organisation to bridge the skills gap? The session will highlight: 

  • The business case for a diverse and inclusive workplace, offering low risk, improved productivity, and high return  
  • Practical strategies to build disability confidence and develop inclusive practices 
  • Case studies showcasing the benefits of disability inclusion 
  • The range of free and expert disability employment supports available through the Australian Government’s JobAccess program 
  • Daniel Valiente-Riedl
