can be found on www.disabilitypower100.com
The Shaw Trust Power 100 List is an annual publication of the 100 most influential disabled people in the UK. Since its inception four years ago, it has allowed Shaw Trust to encourage businesses, employers and other organisations to reflect on opportunities available for disabled people. The list plays a vital role in providing much needed encouragement to the young and talented leaders of tomorrow, allowing them to see that aspiration and ambition can be fulfilled regardless of disability or impairment.
In 2018 more than 700 nominations were received for the 100 places. The Disability Power 100 List is compiled by an independent judging panel, who are all active influencers of change within the disability sector and provide a good cross representation of the different industries and sectors covered in the publication. Importantly, they all have personal experience of disability.
