Our first #DisabilitySummit was a huge success, with over 70 speakers, a sold out audience & a whole lot of amazing ideas.
We're a global hub, bringing together cutting edge technology, lived experienced, academics, innovators, corporates and the local community to explore Disability Innovation from a new perspective. Based in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, the GDI Hub is part of the 2012 Paralympic legacy programme; improving the lives of disabled people worldwide through collaboration, partnerships and study.
We're also a space for ideas and learning - using collaboration to bringing together a diverse range of people, skills and knowledge. We think creatively, design differently and are working to improve the lives of disabled people gloabally.
We are delighted to announce Lord Holmes of Richmond MBE as Chair of the GDI Hub. Chris is former Paralympic swimmer & lifelong campaigner. Chris is Diversity Adviser to the civil service & non-executive director at Channel 4.
We've had a busy & exciting first year. During August we'll be taking some time to consolidate & plan for the future.
We may take a little longer to get back to you during this time.
