People with disabilities are still very much underrepresented in the workplace. With many organisations looking to improve diversity, we wanted to run a webinar with a real focus on hiring people with disabilities whether that be a long-term health condition , a physical disability or a mental health, sensory or cognitive.

There's a long way to go: 

  • Of the 7.7 million disabled people of working age, 4.1 million (53.6%) are currently in work. This compares to 81.7% of those who are not disabled.
  • 42.6% of those with disabilities were economically inactive in the latest quarter, compared to 15.3% of those without disabilities.

This is a huge topic that is full of complexity and unique challenges so we were thrilled to be joined by Evenbreak, the UK's most accessible job board which connects inclusive employers with talented disabled candidates.
