Members join in order to increase the effectiveness of their disability ERGs / networks, develop their leadership skills and learn how to help their organisations to become disability confident from the inside out. They call it Networkology and it is having a powerful worldwide impact on driving the next phase of cultural change within many different types of organisations.
The introduction of rights-based legislation is what we call the first phase of change. In some parts of the world that is still on the move.
The second phase is the process where employers tap into the enabling products and services that help them to create better policy, practice and procedure. That phase continues.
Meanwhile, the third phase of change has begun. Where employees with disability build inner confidence, lean into their careers and create meaningful conversation about how to get ahead at work. High performing disability ERGs and networks are at the vanguard of this change. This is the new modern approach to sustaining culture change
