This learning project has been guided by our collective ambition: with partners, colleagues, advocates and friends across business & enterprise, public service and the voluntary sector, to ensure that the perspectives, talents and contributions of disabled people are firmly embedded within the new post-Covid leadership endeavour, and in all spaces and places.

This short report summarises key learning from an exploratory project on disability and leadership (D&L) seed-funded by the Work Inclusivity Research Centre (WIRC) at the University of Birmingham. We identify several ‘big’ possibilities that emerged from an early scoping literature review on this topic, and from guest speaker presentations and participant discussions at our WIRC Webinar held on 2 June 2021.
