Dr Liz's raw and relevant lessons of tackling bias and discrimination, whilst challenging ourselves to view disability not on the individual but on the environment on which we create, was refreshing and eye opening.

The Strategist

Dr Liz believes that building an inclusive organisation isn’t just beneficial; it’s a major factor of success in the modern business landscape. In fact you’re probably here reading this because you also believe that organisations who seek, celebrate, and embrace diversity will have several very real advantages over their competitors. But Dr Liz wants you to understand this is not just about building a diverse workforce. In order to benefit from the advantages of diversity and inclusion, inclusive principles, actions and behaviours must be engrained within all operations of the organisation. That means inclusion must be business-as-usual!

No matter where you or your organisation are on the diversity and inclusion journey, if you want to actually transform the way diversity and inclusion is done in your organisation, and genuinely achieve inclusive outcomes then there is no better person to support you than Dr Liz.  

Have you considered how inclusion is reinforced (or not) throughout all aspects of your organisation?

  • Business vision, strategy, and values
  • Leadership and management
  • Internal and external communications
  • Marketing and branding (consumer and employer)
  • Workplace practices, environment, and job design
  • Employee lifecycle management
  • Product and service design
  • Technology and software solutions
  • Processes and procedures
  • Corporate social responsibility
Dr Liz brings to the table a new and refreshing way of looking at your business. When it comes to structure and people, I haven't found a more knowledgeable person.

This might seem all too hard
and big and costly and too complicated to do properly…
but I promise you it isn’t!
It’s super simple and I can show you how.
Then you can just get on with it
and do it!”

The Founder

With a desire to create a world where everyone is included, Dr. Liz knew she had to work out a way to equip everyone to be inclusive. From this, Include was conceptualised. In August 2020, Dr. Liz and her co-founder Dr. Jill Rathborne secured venture capital in a year when only 2% of venture capital funds were invested in female founders. Fast forward 12-months and Include is now the world’s first enterprise software designed to equip everyone to make inclusive decisions in real-time.

Many people have an opinion about what the future should look like, but Dr Liz has more than just a vision - she is creating it! It takes a special person to create a better world for other people, especially those more vulnerable in our society. The world needs more people like Dr Liz.
