RADAR research on disabled people in senior jobs

In September 2009, RADAR published ‘Doing Seniority Differently. A study of high fliers living with ill-health, injury or disability’.

The report sets out to answer some key questions on seniority and disability: is there a pool of people living with ill-health, injury or disability working in senior jobs? If so, who are they, what factors have enabled them to progress in their careers, what sectors are they in, what are their experiences?

Despite the presence of high fliers, the report found that sharp inequalities persist. There are also important inequalities among disabled people – in relation to age, gender, ethnicity and impairment type.
