You Can’t Spell Inclusion Without a D – PODCAST

You Can’t Spell Inclusion Without a D is the Ontario Disability Employment Network’s new podcast. Each month we bring you insightful conversations with guests that look at The Power of Inclusion, disability employment and the business benefits of diversity and inclusion, from all the angles. 

Curious about how we came up with that name? The diversity and inclusion (D&I) business conversation still too often focuses on gender and ethnicity only. Disability is left out or is an afterthought. We believe that you can’t really have inclusion without including disability in the conversation. Hence, You Can’t Spell Inclusion Without a D.

The podcast is co-hosted by Jeannette Campbell, ODEN’s CEO, and Dean Askin, our Communications Strategist. You Can’t Spell Inclusion Without a D is hosted on Podbean, and available wherever you download your favourite podcasts.
