Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDI Hub) are trialing a new membership model that brings together individuals and organisations passionate about disability innovation.

GDI Hub want to connect disabled people, experts, academics, entrepreneurs, businesses, Disabled People's Organisations, governments, and charities more effectively to drive change and build a fairer world.

We are starting with an Inclusive Design Network that will include curated content and the opportunity to share ideas and connect with other innovators from around the world.

At first, the network will be managed through a private LinkedIn group and we are asking our contacts, both individuals and organisations, if they would like to join and then we will see how it goes!

It is free to join. All we ask is that you volunteer one hour a month of your time towards making the world a more inclusively designed place. In the future we will collect more information about these pledges - whether you have offered an hour to a friend, designed a new idea, or shared some thoughts on social media.

We want to be able to recognise the effort and time you commit to inclusive design so we can tell the world about our collective impact.

If you are interested in joining our movement through this Inclusive Design networking group please sign up by answering this short survey and we’ll send you a follow up email inviting you to the LinkedIn group.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!
