Matt Pierri is an Australian lawyer and visiting scholar at the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government, where he researches disability policy. He is also the founder and CEO of SociAbility, an app that provides detailed information on the accessibility of shops and local venues.
In this conversation, Matt and I talk about accessibility and how the SociAbility app could facilitate more diversity-led, inclusive decision-making processes and more integrated societies. Matt shares why he thinks it is important to treat access not as charity or an exercise in virtue signalling, and instead makes both a moral and a business case for designing more inclusive social spaces.
If you are interested in social entrepreneurship and wonder how to get a more diverse group of people seats at the decision makers’ table, this episode is for you!
