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.
