Our Voices, Our Stories is a series of conversations with IPFA members and industry leaders, where we hear about their experiences, in their own words.
October is Disability Awareness Month. This conversation is part of IPFA’s activities to raise awareness of the impacts of disability in the workplace and in our industry.
In this 16-minute interview, Brian Ross, InfraShares and Ross Infrastructure Development, speaks to Zoe Markwick, Square Peg Infrastructure and US Branch Council Member. Brian talks about how having a disability has impacted him personally and professionally, and how being differently-abled has driven him to focus more on inclusion in the workplace. He also explains what a disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) is, and the challenges and opportunities he has faced as a DBE.
