UBS Senior Leaders Explore First-Hand Disability at Work

Five senior leaders volunteered to experience one of the challenges our colleagues with disabilities face to raise awareness. 

How many people in your work area have a disability? If you said "zero," you're probably wrong. Around 70% of disabilities are invisible – and there are many types – so chances are, someone you work with lives with a disability.

An inclusive and disability-friendly workplace benefits everyone, and our leadership is certainly supportive. But that's very different from appreciating what it feels like to come to work every day with a disability. So, we asked five senior leaders around the world to spend half a day experiencing a fraction of what it could be like.

"Spending half a day with a physical impairment is tiny relative to the experiences of those who have a disability of any kind," said Head of Diversity & Inclusion Carolanne Minashi. "I'm really interested to see that if we can give some of our senior leaders a glimpse into what it's like, whether that creates some understanding to deliver more commitment and more momentum to change culture at UBS."
