Rachael is the founder of SIC, shaking up what it means to have an accessible and inclusive workplace. Disabled since age 12, she has faced barriers to education and the workforce.


An inclusive work culture expert, Rachael takes academic theory combined with lived experience of disability and growing and leading both small and large-scale operations to effectively make change. 


In this episode we dive into:



  • How society fails disabled workers, and why companies need to build accessibility into work from the ground up


  • Why employers underestimate those who don’t fit the mould, and how people can thrive when given the suitable adjustments


  • The power of the purple pound, and re-educating employers to ensure that the 47% of disabled people who are unemployed in the UK get the chance to work
