3. Learn and share more about disability diversity and inclusivity
APM started 2020 by launching the first ever Disability Diversity & Inclusivity Index of Australian businesses.
We gathered insights from more than 600 business across Australia and spoke to more than 1,200 people with disability about access to employment, careers, equality and inclusivity.
The research enabled us to record an inaugural benchmark rating of disability diversity and inclusivity of businesses in Australia.
The benchmark rating for 2020 was 57.6 out of 100. Showing there is plenty of work to be done by organisations across Australia to be more diverse and inclusive of people with disability.
This year COVID-19 has affected major aspects of daily life, and disability diversity and inclusivity didn’t escape its impact.
The Disability Diversity & Inclusivity rating for 2021 is lower at 56.2.
Find out more about what this means for people with disability and the work still needed to be done by businesses, governments, communities and other organisations to be more inclusive and accessible by downloading the APM Disability Diversity and Inclusivity Index today.
