Disability Action Week event: Driving workforce diversity, inclusion and innovation

As part of Disability Action Week 2021, Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) is hosting a free virtual event: Driving workforce diversity, inclusion and innovation on Friday, 10 December from 10:00am – 12:00pm.

The event looks at ways people with disability can be included and engaged in employment opportunities, why having a diverse and inclusive workforce is a good business model, and the different ways we need to rethink employment and business – such as entrepreneurship and small businesses run by people with disability.

Opening the event is Queensland’s Minister for Disability Services, the Honourable Craig Crawford, with keynote speaker Dr Dinesh Palipana, QDN member and Queensland’s 2021 Australian of the Year.

As part of the event, four breakout rooms with discussions on workforce diversity, workplace inclusion, entrepreneurship, innovation and changing the system will take place.
