Sally Bibb Speaks at EY Ability Conference
LID author Sally Bibb spoke at the inaugural EY Ability conference on November 30, hosted by Kate Nash OBE.
Sally took part in a panel on The Power of Story-Telling, to encourage people to bring their whole selves to the workplace. This involves leadership creating the culture for people to feel more confident about who they truly are. EY see disability as strengths.
One of the ways Sally supports inclusive business is by training them in strengths-based recruitment; this aims to ensure the interviewee is the right fit for the company with regards to what they are naturally good at, what motivates them, and what they enjoy doing.
EY support a commitment to focusing on peopleâ€™s strengths rather than their â€śdisabilities.â€ť
Other panellists taking part were the award-winning deaf actress Genevieve Barr, famous for roles in TV programmes Liar, Call the Midwife, The Fades, Shameless and The Silence; and Iain Wilkie, founder of Employers Stammering Network and Chair of Ability EY.
Host Kate Nash OBE is the worldâ€™s leading authority in the establishment and performance coaching of workplace disability networks or business resource groups. She has 20 years of experience in working strategically to effect long-term attitudinal and major social systemic change in relation to disabled people. Founder of PurpleSpace, Kate has worked extensively with the business community in their becoming more â€śdisability confident.â€ť
