This week, Katie Hyson, Business Fights Poverty’s Director of Thought Leadership talks with Joan Bohan. During this podcast you’ll hear Joan explain how she can be both Executive Finance Director and the founder of Dysnie Intrapreneur Venture at The Walt Disney Company.
The conversation explores how a purpose led company, one inspirational senior leader talk and an intrapreneur challenge competition unlocked Joan’s nascent power to innovate and launch an entire new business proposition for the company.
Products and services designed specifically for the 10% of our global population with dyslexia is Joan’s target. During this podcast Joan explains the missed opportunity – why current popular media materials for children and young people are missing those with hidden differences and disabilities. Joan wants to change that.
Joan shares that designing dyslexia inclusive e-books and magazines are just her first step. She would like to hear from anyone who is interested in understanding better how to support those with dyslexia through their organisations. From inclusive recruitment and in role support to wider development of products and services for those with dyslexia - the business opportunities are great, the social impacts, enormous.
