Our disabled student community tell us of the multitude of obstacles they face in the transition from higher education to employment.
Aware of the success of leadership networks accelerating other under-represented groups like women and the Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities into senior workplace roles, we set out to create an equivalent for disabled people.
Over the last two years, we have piloted the DLN and commissioned the Global Disability Innovation (GDI) Hub to run this on our behalf. Now it has reached a critical-mass, it's time to invest in the next stage of its development.
Best placed to drive this, we put its members in control, taking a co-design approach which enabled them to shape the development project and re-imagine the future they want for themselves and future generations of disabled students and graduates.
