Kate Nash OBE
CEO, Purple Space
PurpleSpace is an innovative online platform that brings together disability network leaders in the workplace to share best practice advice that will drive cultural change on disability in business. Kate Nash Associates work with 300 disabled employee networks (DENs) with a combined community each of approximately 850,000 disabled employees. PurpleSpace was developed with a reference group of over 30 DENs including Barclays Bank Reach Network, the Civil Service Disability Network, the National Association of Disabled Staff Networks and the Disabled Police Assocations. The platform includes resources such as In The Chair, that offers a collection of top tips for anyone running a network.
Kate Nash says “We are indebted to individuals at UmbrellaDev who have provided the know-how and resources to build PurpleSpace from the ground up. Their support puts us on track to nurture our social and economic ‘movement’ of employees, helping others to navigate the experience of disability and stay in and get on at work.“
