Launched in early 2018, the Disability Inclusion Practice is powered through Scope Global’s experience in working with people with disabilities throughout Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Through the practice we recognise that people with disabilities are experts in disability inclusion. We then connect these ‘experts’ to the development and business worlds, tailoring connections to suit individual organisational needs.
The Disability Inclusion Practice aims to break down barriers to inclusion in Australia and overseas by creating employment opportunities for people with disability, while meeting a growing need for organisations across the globe.
It also provides a vehicle to harness the breadth of inclusion expertise that Scope Global has developed through managing a diverse portfolio of programs.
The practice offers the following services:
- Cross-cultural experiences to build the skills and confidence of people with disabilities
- Mentoring platforms
- Culturally sensitive monitoring and evaluation frameworks
- Technical advice and consulting tailored to organisational needs.
Scope Global was invited to be a panellist at the United Nations Development Program and United Nations Volunteers Partnership and Engagement meeting in Bonn, Germany. Our experts provided subject matter expertise and input for the development of their new initiative ‘Talent Program for Young Professionals with a Disability’.
This year we also finalised an organisation-wide disability inclusion monitoring, evaluation and learning framework for Scope Global. This audit provides a baseline of current disability inclusion knowledge, attitudes and practices for Scope Global and the programs we manage for our clients. The framework also sets a roadmap for advancing greater inclusion throughout our operations in Australia, Asia and the Pacific.
