Sarah Simcoe is Head of Business Enablement within Fujitsu UK and Ireland’s Business & Application Services business. Sarah is also the Chair of Fujitsu UK and Ireland’s Disability Employee Network, SEED, a role she has held for the last 10 months. Sarah has recently received the accolade of being appointed as the newest PurpleSpace Ambassador. Founded by Kate Nash Associates PurpleSpace is the UK’s only network and professional development hub for disabled employee network leaders and employees. Sarah has worked within the IT industry for around 17 years and during that time has held a number of positions, all of which have involved a focus on effectiveness and improving the business. Her 10 month tenure as SEED Chair has provided the opportunity to get more involved in what improving an organization looks like when you are focused on accessibility, inclusion and creating an environment of respect. Over the last few months SEED’s focus has been on driving an outcome based plan that aligns to the organizational objectives, that builds stronger collaboration across functions, employees and management and that looks to influence a #BeCompletelyYou approach in the workplace. Sarah states that “If we get it right for ourselves, as employers, as employees, for our suppliers and for our customers, then we will continue to increase retention and attract talent to our organization.”
