This year, The Regard Group joined Purple Space – the world’s only professional development hub for disability network leaders. Joining Purple Space is another step to developing Regard’s culture of inclusion, and to attracting and keeping the best people.
Purple Space aim to make it easier for employees to navigate the experience of ill health, disability or the experience of an accident or injury, at the same time as flourishing at work.
They do this in three ways:
• By creating the world’s first professional development and best practice exchange for disability employee network and / or resource group leaders, allies & champions
• By supporting employee network and resource group leaders to build vibrant disability networks that help colleagues to bring their authentic selves to work
• By helping employers to improve business performance by learning directly from disabled employees
We are looking forward to attending Purple Space events over the coming months, and taking part in their ‘Purple Light Up’ event on 3rd December.
