The Disability Smart Awards will take place in London on Thursday 29 November 2018
The Disability Smart Awards recognise and celebrate businesses who have demonstrated outstanding and innovative practice. We will hear about businesses large and small and across all sectors who have helped transform the lives of disabled people in the workplace and in society.
Hosted by GB Paralympian Stef Reid and Business Disability Forum CEO Diane Lightfoot.
The awards are hosted by the Business Disability Forum, this is a not-for-profit membership organisation that makes it easier and more rewarding to do business with and employ disabled people.
By providing pragmatic support, sharing expertise, giving advice, providing training and facilitating networking opportunities, they help organisations become fully accessible to disabled customers and employees. Ultimately, their aim is to transform the life chances – and experience – of disabled people as employees and consumers.
They do this, by bringing together business people, disabled opinion leaders and government to understand what needs to change if disabled people are to be treated fairly so that they can contribute to business success, to society and to economic growth.
