Inclusive governance framework

May 2023

Inclusive governance means that people with intellectual disability are decision makers in organisations and bring their voices and insight to the board and decision making structures.

The Disability Royal Commission investigated organisational governance as part of Public Hearing 13 – Preventing and responding to violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation in disability services (a case study).  In the report of Public Hearing 13, the Disability Royal Commission said “the inclusion of people with disability as directors is likely to expand the range of experience, skills and knowledge available to the Board and to improve the quality of services provided”.

This framework is a guide to inclusive governance practice at your organisation.

We offer inclusive governance workshops for boards and senior management.
