Champion of Inclusion Award
Paralympic gold-medallist Liz Johnson spent the last 20 years winning accolades in the world of elite sport. She swept the Paralympics, World and European Championships and was selected as London 2012’s Paralympic Oath Taker. Beyond her sports career, Liz was struck by the UK’s massive disability gap which has stood at 30% for the past decade. To tackle this and the stigma around disability she co-founded The Ability People (TAP). TAP is a unique consultancy created to end disability discrimination in the workplace and close the disability employment gap. TAP is staffed entirely by people with disabilities and works with companies to help them become authentically inclusive. Liz is also a passionate disability rights campaigner and fronted a UN award-winning disability awareness campaign with the IPC. She is an Ambassador for the charity Panathlon Challenge and a patron of Dreamflight.
