Working in partnership with business to develop tools to help measure and improve their performance when recruiting and retaining employees with disabilities

Business Disability Forum is a not-for-profit member organisation that makes it easier and more rewarding to do business with, and employ people with disabilities. The members employ almost 20% of the UK workforce and we are a key stakeholder for both business and government.

Diane Lightfoot joined Business Disability Forum as CEO in February 2017. Diane meets regularly with Partners and Members and works with Government to help shape disability employment policy.

Diane is passionate about the role that good work has in transforming the lives of people with disabilities. Business Disability Forum provides pragmatic support by sharing expertise, giving advice, providing training and consultancy, facilitating networking opportunities and developing practical tools. As a business membership organisation, they work in partnership with business and people with disabilities in order to develop tools that are practical, rooted in the reality of business and credible in the eyes of both business and people with disabilities.
