disAbility Awareness networks

The main objective of UBS's most recent network, the disAbility Awareness network, is to encourage people to focus on ability, not disability. The network was launched in the UK, with a second network in Switzerland. Open to employees interested in any area of disability awareness, the network focuses specifically on education and awareness, recruitment and retention, employee support and accessibility for both clients and employees.

Since its inception, the disAbility Awareness network has offered a number of annual events that raise awareness about disability. It has also sponsored seminars on mental health and caring for elderly parents and/or disabled children, as well as recruiting events for people with disabilities.
