If you have ever wanted to understand (or help others understand) the business case for employing disabled people, this is the definitive book for you. Using evidence from a wide range of research, case studies and personal experience, evey aspect of the workplace is examined in relation to inclusivity, providing a compelling business case relevant to every sector.
"This is the book I could have done with right at the start of my journey" (Michael Vermeersch, Microsoft)

"An accessible, positive and informative read for anyone interested in the richness of difference in the workplace" (Francesca Martinez, comedian, author and activist)
"Diversity: The Business Benefits" (to buy, click here)
There is much talk about Diversity being "good for business", but where is the evidence? This book explores research, studies and real life case studies. It is a must for anyone who wants to know, or who wants to convince others, of the bottom line business benefits of diversity.
"Disability Etiquette" (to buy, click here)
Many people feel embarrassed or awkward around disabled people. Fear of saying the wrong thing can mean the disabled person is ignored and isolated. This light-hearted book, illustrated with cartoons, will remove all that fear and help you feel confident around disabled people.

We offer consultancy and leadership support, drawing upon our own lived and shared experiences to help you shape your organisation into one that embraces and welcomes diversity. We have created a series of interactive training workshops which aim to increase awareness around a range of diversity issues and give participants the practical skills to embed an inclusive approach to neurodiversity and disability in your workplace. We offer Workplace Needs Assessments; designed to provide an overview of any challenges employees might face at work, as a result of neurodiversity or disability.
