Disability Leadership Institute - AITCAP 2023 Online Session Sponsor
Disabled people are at least 15% of the global population, but remain largely unrepresented at senior levels. Despite this, Australia has never had a cohesive ongoing program to support and develop leaders with disabilities. The Disability Leadership Institute (DLI) has been established to address this diversity imbalance. The Institute offers leadership development, coaching, training, connection to opportunities, a supportive community of peers and an Australia-wide professional network. Leaders at all stages are supported to connect to leadership positions and opportunities while being provided with targeted support and training.
If we aren’t visible, we will never achieve equality.
