Foundations of Disability Leadership

Foundations of Disability Leadership

The May 2024 program is full.

Next open program commences May 2025.

(The DLI is always happy to discuss running an in house program for your organisation.)

An 8-week fully virtual program on what disability leadership is, how to do it, how to carry yourself, and what you should know.

Join us for our latest major program. Open to all disabled people everywhere.

The Foundations of Disability Leadership will give you what you need to use your disability as an asset, as you grow your understanding of how to operate as a leader in the many places disability leaders work.


Foundations of Disability Leadership is about owning your disability as part of your leadership work.

Are you often the only disabled person in the room?

Do you feel the need to conceal your disability or minimise it?

Have you been hitting the concrete ceiling with your career going nowhere?

Foundations of Disability Leadership will provide you with the skills to tackle some of these common challenges.
