Empowered Employers

Empowered Employers

Since the pandemic, ways of working have changed for many and the adjustments that disabled people have long been entitled to, like flexible working, are starting to become more commonplace.

Empowered Employers aims to build on these changes, supporting organisations within Gloucestershire to consider attitudes and policies that enable meaningful work opportunities for disabled people, people with mental health challenges and neurodivergent people.

Empowered Employers is a campaign that looks at the three ways in which barriers to employment present themselves; the employment gap, the pay gap and the opportunities gap.

As part of the campaign we will be running a Learning Programme which will support employers to make practical adjustments but also challenge assumptions about disability. By being a participant in our Learning Programme your company will receive accreditation. Full details can be found on the campaign website www.empoweredemployers.co.uk
