“I spent most of the first half of this year applying over and over again to different companies, making it most of the way through the process. I was getting kicked out of the running before I could show what I could do.”

Briannah Milne is the 2000th intern to join our Stepping Into internship program. Read about her internship journey at Corrs Chambers Westgarth.

Build disability confidence throughout your organisation

Ready to embed disability confidence within your organisation? Our new eLearns are here to help.

Attitude is often the biggest barrier people with disability face. This is often unintentional and with education can be overcome.

Our new e-learns have been built to help educate your business towards disability confidence. Inclusion, Diversity and Belonging needs to be upheld across the entire organisation and our e-learns are an engaging and efficient way to do so.

What could be easier than providing employees the opportunity to learn at their own pace and time?

With 11 modules spanning: disability confident workforces, management and recruitment practices, and supporting customers with disability; there is something for every work unit.

Find out how you can embed disability confidence in your organisation.
