2023 Disability Inclusive Pathways Conference
It's a wrap!
Thank you to our 2023 speaker line-up which included a diverse array of experts from both New Zealand and abroad, including disabled and neurodiverse individuals, as well as those who have successfully implemented disability inclusion in practice.
Attendees at this year's conference, "Collectively Stronger," embarked on a journey of discovery and exploration, uncovering strategies to support and empower disabled and neurodiverse New Zealanders in their professional paths, and confronting prevailing societal narratives.
The conference delved into innovative approaches to cultivating organisational cultures that wholeheartedly foster a profound sense of belonging for disabled individuals within the workplace.
Thank You to our Sponsors and Supporters
