Drawing on insights from leading names across a variety of industries and disciplines, Mill Talk is for artists, directors, innovators, technologists, and thinkers who bring extraordinary ideas to life. Mill Talk is curated by global production partner The Mill, hosted by Becca Falborn and produced by Lime Studios, NYC.
In this series ‘Makers for Creative Good’, we’ll be examining different ways our industry can take action and use our creativity and voices for social and equitable good. We’ll be speaking to representatives from varying trades to touch on topics from representation in media to the importance creativity for good has on our community issues.
Wrapping up Series 2, our host Becca sits down with Graeme Whippy MBE, a disability consultant who helps organizations become better employers for disabled people, and consequently better employers for everyone. During the discussion, Graeme walks us through the UK’s Disability Confident Scheme, it’s importance, why more companies in the ad and creative space should take part, and how we can go about changing attitudes towards disabled people.
Find out more about the Disability Confident scheme, Graeme Whippy and his work, and The Mill’s pledge. Be sure to learn more about the other helpful disability inclusion initiatives that were discussed on this episode: Disability and Work, Workability International.
