This is Me encourages colleagues to tell their personal stories, changing perceptions of disability, mental health and neurodiversity.
From nine colleagues sharing their story in 2013, over 250 have now shared their personal experiences. The company has seen some tangible results: the number of colleagues sharing that they have a disability, or a neurodiverse or mental health condition, has increased from 3% to 11%.
In 2016 Barclays’ experience of This is Me was shared with the City of London’s Lord Mayor’s Appeal, with over 400 organisations taking part with the potential to reach over 3m employees.
