DISABILITY AND INCLUSION PLANS (DAIP)
The pathway to building an inclusive organisation.
GSA consult with your people to develop a Disability and Accessibility, Inclusion Plan which supports the creation of an inclusive community breaking down barriers and stigmas to create equal access across all touch points of your organisation. Plans go towards building a diverse workplace culture, recruitment of an increasing number of people with disability and improving their professional development.
A plan educates existing staff about working with people with disability and will often support the creation of innovative products and services that are accessible, to meet the needs of a diverse customer base and empower staff to improve customer experience.
Harnessing the commitment of the executive team to be the champions of change.
The executive team play a significant part in providing an inclusive organisation for their customers, stakeholders and their people. We work with the executive team by giving them an immersive experience allowing them to better understand the experience for people with disability and people with accessibility challenges.
GSA Team members, all who have disability and lived experience, provide an inclusive environment whereby the executives can ask all the questions they need to support increased awareness and attitudes towards people with disability. This method of engagement empowers social and cultural change from the top-tier down.
