Hosted by the FMA Diversity & Inclusion Special Interest Group, this special speaker series is inspired by the ABC original series.  They'll aim to offer insights into the lives of our diverse FMA members whereby they are asked to answer questions aimed to break down stereotypes and increase awareness surrounding diversity and inclusion within our industry.

We Want to Know’ is about offering genuine insight into the lives of people who live with labels. The series provides a platform to discuss some of the misunderstood or marginalized people within our industry.  We want to change the narrative from ‘We Want to Know’ to ‘We Know’.

ACCESSIBILITY - is the first of this speaker series...


Our presenters will explore the following:

Improving accessibility in workplaces
What constitutes great examples of accessibility within the workplace
The challenges  faced to improve accessibility in workplaces
Whether this is a quick win to improve building accessibility for people
If you could change or advocate for one thing about building accessibility, what would it be (forget about cost)?
What can be done to improve access to premises and services for people who use assistance animals
