"As a person with a physical disability, I realise the power of a programme like this to provide access to career opportunities that would otherwise not be available. The firms participating in the [10,000 Able Interns] programme will make an enormous difference to the lives of disabled students and will benefit hugely from realising their potential. Not only will firms have a wider pool of talent to draw upon, but such experiences will only strengthen their capacity to embrace disability in the workplace.”
