Inclusion is everybody's business. 

Building social and economic inclusion is everybody’s business.

Inclusion of people with disabilities creates a strong economy by enabling a diverse community contribution which drives future growth. To deliver this growth we need to work together to build an inclusive and sustainable future for the Community Service Industry, business and the wider community.

Join CSIA and key speakers, thought leaders, experts, and hear the latest research, ideas and opportunities at a one-day event exploring how we can learn more about, create, lead and develop inclusion in our communities and organisations.

Read about the full program, including speakers like Professor Bruce Bonyhady OM, Katie Barton-Harvey, Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour and Remarkable Founder Peter Horsley as they talk about the big issues, leaderships and building partnerships around inclusion. Now is the time to be part of creating the inclusive future.  

Inclusion Ready Summit Program

The Inclusion Ready Summit panels, discussions and conversations will be led by Panel Chairs. These roles are filled by people living with disabilities who will provide additional insights and reflections on the sessions.


Following the Summit, the Panel Chairs will meet and develop a response with key insights and directions from the day to contribute to building momentum towards Inclusion.

Meet the speakers

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), is designed to operate as an inclusive growth framework, enabling supports for a better life for people with disability as citizens in the community. As part of this effort, across Australia the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is delivering the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program through grants to fund creative, innovative, accessible and inclusive projects for people with disabilities. CSIA is delivering the Inclusion Ready project to support organisations, businesses and communities to better understand inclusion, as well as navigating and preparing for ILC activities and opportunities.

Together we can create new opportunities to create inclusive economic growth with benefits for everyone in the community, as well as the person with disability, who may become a customer, client, employee, student, team member or holidaymaker at your organisation, sports club, business, shop, restaurant or rental property.
