Panel discussions on inclusive entrepreneurship
makes entrepreneurship open and easily accessible to all. It levels the playing field and allows entrepreneurs to seek, create and participate in opportunities, especially those facing barriers to the workplace.
As an organisation, we have a commitment towards innovation within inclusive communities, and together we are creating the 2030 Agenda Paradigm Shift tasked of us in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - where communities start to see people who face barriers, not as burdens, but as contributing citizens who bring a new and exciting presence to the table.
The resultant contribution to the growth of the economy from such enterprise is what we term Inclusive Economic Growth.

T33 Wheelchair Racer Weir Archer & Ability Today Ambassador
One thing I have learnt this year is that no matter how long the journey takes it’s going to be worth it and that there’s always improvements to be made to enable the goals to become a reality “No mountain is ever too high”.
I started Ability Today as an online platform providing news and information on products, services and organizations that help and support the disabled community. It represents a rollercoaster journey following my accident, with definitely some ups and downs but as I realised, “...I am one of the lucky ones!".
