How to build inclusion into the everyday

How to build inclusion into the everyday

The journey of a company challenging perceptions and transforming business by including disabled people in everything they do.

Annamarie firmly believes that everyone has the right to contribute to society, to follow a passion, and to be connected to our communities in some shape or form.

In her position as the People & Culture Director for Stuff.co.nz, she launched and implemented the award-winning Creative Spirit programme, which gives young adults with intellectual disabilities a chance to contribute to society in a meaningful way.

This was followed by The Coffee CO-OP, Stuff’s Auckland office cafe, which is staffed by deaf baristas. These programs and the many benefits that have arisen not only to the employees, employers but to the community have been immeasurable.
