2022 Disability Inclusive Pathways Conference

Our second 'Disability Inclusive Pathways Conference', held in August 2022, saw  120+ people come to the Novotel Lakeside Rotorua – doubling the size of our inaugural 2021 Conference.

The theme, 'Unlocking True Potential' looked at how we can support and empower disabled and neurodiverse employees to be all that they are capable of being and ways to foster organisational culture of true belonging of disabled people in the workplace.

Thank-you to the business leaders, diversity and human resources professionals, industry experts and influencers from the public, private and for-purpose sectors who joined us and made it a great event.

Thank you also to our amazing disability experts, experienced practitioners and disabled people from Aotearoa and around the world who each bought a valuable perspective that sparked so much discussion and consideration from our attendees.
