Disability Champion's Events

The Australian Network on Disability (AND) supports a Disability Champion's Network.

This exclusive opportunity is only open to senior executive leaders who are members of AND.

Meetings provide a platform for invited guests to share experiences and engage in valuable conversations among leaders who are executive sponsors and champions of access and inclusion of people with disability for their organisations.


  • Hear about other organisations’ successes and challenges.
  • Keep informed of employee/customer and community expectations.
  • Stay abreast of contemporary information and relevant research.
  • Influence how AND supports large complex organisations, such as yours, to welcome people with disability as customers, employees and stakeholders.

Disability Champion's events are held three times a year in Canberra, and twice a year in Sydney and Melbourne.

The events are generally lunch or dinner meetings. Meetings run for around 1.5 hours, are informal, and are run in accordance with the Chatham House Rule.

AND believes in the power of networks, relationships and collaboration to achieve change, to share knowledge and grow expertise. We know from experience that it can be particularly powerful when senior leaders come together.
