From Disability Horizons.
Diversity and inclusion are as important today – and often lacking – as they have ever been. The recent Black Lives Matter campaign and annual LGBT Pride month were a reminder that many people from different walks of life still don’t have a voice.
Disability Horizons was created with this in mind, to give disabled people a platform to share, learn and show what they’re truly capable, to change societies’ perceptions.
That’s why we’re supporting the Association of Colleges‘ campaign to encourage more diversity within boards of governors, to have people from a range of backgrounds and with different experiences steering education and businesses.
The Association of Colleges (AOC) is a not-for-profit membership organisation whose aim is to be a national voice for further education, sixth form, tertiary and specialist colleges in England.
Acting as the collective voice, its aim is to champion and support the sector, creating great colleges that transform lives.
