Lessons in Disability Inclusion: Insights from Deloitte’s Approach

We love Deloitte’s approach to disability inclusion as detailed in this article:

Deloitte: ‘You don’t need to be perfect; you just need to start’ disability inclusion work

We believe organisations can learn important lessons from Deloitte’s approach to disability inclusion:

  • Start the Journey: Begin the journey towards disability inclusion, prioritising action over perfection.
  • Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approach: Combine leadership commitment with input from employees with lived experiences.
  • Humility and Willingness to Learn: Cultivate a culture of continuous learning and action, irrespective of current accomplishments.
  • Inclusive Culture: Create a workplace culture that values diversity, fostering better outcomes for all.
  • Accessibility by Design: Integrate accessibility into all aspects of the organisation, from technology to physical spaces.
  • Data-Driven Approach: Encourage voluntary self-identification to inform strategies and track progress effectively.
  • Educational Initiatives: Implement awareness-raising programmes to foster understanding and empathy.
  • Collaborations and External Partnerships: Work with external organisations to improve disability inclusion efforts.
  • Practical Solutions: Address practical needs promptly, ensuring everyday aspects of work are accessible.
  • Regulatory Preparedness: Prepare for upcoming regulatory changes, enhancing self-disclosure practices.

By adopting these lessons, organisations can advance their disability inclusion efforts, creating a more diverse and equitable workplace.
