Over half of us will experience disability or short term injury during our working life.

Which really points to the importance of creativity in our workplace.I think about when I was younger and I was a person who didn't have the confidence to seek support and ask for adjustment in my workplace.

I was working in a role in a major stadium in Australia, and the role required working at night time with over 80,000 people. As I was losing my eyesight, it was becoming increasingly difficult to do that role. The event part of that role was only, say, 20% of what I did.

At the time I didn't feel I could have the conversation with H.R. to job carve and to be flexible with my roles and responsibilities. Had I had that conversation, we would have found some solutions. Perhaps I would have done and picked up some other responsibilities, some other admin, comms, marketing path, but we never had that conversationand I resigned.I think it really points to all of us being creative the way we work and being flexible and agile in people's job roles.

People need to feel comfortable to be able to have conversations, to ask for modifications, for their role, because inclusion benefits everyone.
