Claudia Buffini talks inclusion this Deaf Awareness Week

We speak to our very own Claudia Buffini, Corporate Responsibility Advisor, who was born profoundly deaf. Claudia’s role involves working with many different charities, championing causes she’s really passionate about and embedding a culture of inclusion.

So who better to tell us about why inclusion matters and how she feels included in the workplace. Watch the one minute video:



“Deaf Awareness Week is about creating additional awareness about hearing loss and also highlighting the importance of the deaf community” said Claudia. “For me personally it’s about bringing a sense of belonging and to be happy with who I am.”

Driving inclusion at Schroders 

As a Disability Confident employer and a member of the global Valuable 500 initiative, we’ve partnered with a disability-specialist organisation to conduct an audit and provide recommendations on how to make our recruitment processes more accessible to potential candidates with a disability.

We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Snowdon Trust following the success of our first paid work placements for individuals with a disability in February 2021.

Our WorkAbility employee-led inclusion network aims to educate employees, champion accessibility,  and provide a supporting network for those affected by disability or long-term health conditions.

Hear from our people about how we are continuing to create a more inclusive workplace at Schroders.
