In this episode, the PRI's CEO, Fiona Reynolds, speaks with our very special guest, Ted Kennedy, Jr.

As a paediatric bone cancer survivor and amputee, Ted has been an active leader in the movement to expand opportunities for persons with disabilities. As well as a leading healthcare regulatory attorney, he is the chair of the board of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). He also advises employers on best practices and compliance with the Americans with Disability Act, as well as lectures worldwide on healthcare policy and disability law.

Ted is also involved with The Disability Equality Index, America's leading corporate benchmark tool for disability equality inclusion.

Fiona and Ted discuss why disability inclusion in the workplace is an 'S' issue for investors, and why they should look at diversity from a strategic perspective.

At PRI in Person, the PRI’s Elena Espinoza spoke with John Howchin, Secretary-General, Council of Ethics of the Swedish National Pension Funds, and Jaime Gornsztejn, Director, Hermes EOS, about tailings in the mining sector.

We sat down with them following a breakout session with Amanda Andrade, a survivor of the Brumadinho dam disaster in early 2019. We discussed what the opportunities are for investor action. How can investors effectively carry out engagements with mining companies? What are the new investor expectations on mining companies? And what will be the consequences for companies who don’t comply with these expectations?
