Great news! Robin Christopherson MBE, Head of Digital Inclusion at AbilityNet, has been nominated for the Shaw Trust Disability Power 100 2020. It's a list of 100 of the UK’s most influential people who are disabled or who live with an impairment.

Now in its sixth year, the publication celebrates achievement, breaks down barriers but more importantly provides much needed encouragement to the young and talented leaders of tomorrow, allowing them to see that aspiration and ambition can be fulfilled regardless of whether they are disabled or live with an impairment.

Speaking about his nomination for this year's Power 100, Robin says: “Given the right adjustments and the same opportunities, disabled people can be as powerful as anyone else. Add to that our tenacity and determination that so often seems to arise from impairment, and we can excel in whatever field we choose. We can sort our adjustments and our tech, but the opportunities come from others. That’s why initiatives such as this are so important.”

Take a look at last year’s edition of the Disability Power 100.

This year's publication is due to be published in the Autumn. Fingers crossed for Robin!
