Event description

Description

Topic for July meeting:

Diversity - how to employ and leverage the perspective of people with different abilities, backgrounds, and points of view.

We've read the research - diversity reaps dividends. But how do we actually go about recruiting, employing, and making use of these differences?

Guest speaker - CHRISTINA RYAN, Founder of the Disability Leadership Institute.

After 20 years working in community sector management, Christina realised that the levels of violence and marginalisation experienced by people with disabilities were the direct outcome of inequality, and that to address this we need a growth in disability leadership right across the public domain.

So, Christina established the Disability Leadership Institute in 2016 as a professional hub for leaders with disabilities to build & support our disability leaders. It is the first organisation of its kind globally, run by and for disability leaders. The DLI aims to grow the presence and recognition of disability leaders across all sections of our community. Christina is also a regular keynote speaker and commentator.

In 2013 Christina was acknowledged as one of 100 women of the Canberra Centenary. She was a finalist in the 2014 ACT Telstra Businesswomen’s Awards, and was awarded the Lifetime Achievement in Inclusion at the 2015 ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards. Christina was a 2017 Westpac Social Change Fellow.

The objective is to create a space where leaders can come together to share insights, challenges, and resources. The for purpose sector is dynamic with unique challenges. Here we can share collective wisdom to help each other in our quest for better and more successful organisations.
