We are excited to announce the Diversity Scotland will be this year’s SUSE Annual Conference headline sponsors.

“With the Disability Employment Gap (DEG) in Scotland standing at 31.6 percentage points it’s evident that employers need to maintain a clear focus on improving the employment prospects of disabled people.  As the nation’s leading Diversity, Equity and Inclusion consultancy business, Diversity Scotland is proud to be an active partner of the Scottish Government’s Apt PSP (Public Social Partnership), led by SUSE (Scottish Union of Supported Employment).

Through our consultancy work Diversity Scotland consistently finds that employers still require greater awareness and understanding of disability, and of how to manage/support disabled people at work. The DEG will only close when employers and managers are confident in this area.

Our headline sponsorship of the 2023 SUSE Conference and the Apt Awards aims to show private sector support for the important work of closing the DEG.  We also hope that it will be a rallying cry to all of our client organisations across Scotland to sign up as an Apt employer and to work with us to take meaningful action to increase the number of quality, sustainable jobs for people with disabilities and long-term health conditions.”
