Right now around 1 million New Zealanders have an access need. This could include someone with a physical impairment, vision or hearing loss, a learning impairment, a short-term injury or an age related access impairment. For us, having an access need - or being an access citizen - isn't about deficit, limitation or disability. It's about Possibility.
"If you are not designing access in… you are designing customers, talent and profit out”
This is why at Be. Lab we look at the world through what we call the 'Possibility Lens'. This enables us to create innovative, world-leading programmes and activity to support individuals and organisations to realise the benefits of equitable and accessible spaces, systems, cultures and design.
We know, based on extensive research, experience and partnership with leading organisations, that every person has something incredible to offer, and our society will be significantly better off when we can all share in it.
We support our nation's leaders, innovators, and makers to reimagine our world and embrace the opportunities accessibility presents.
We partner with organisations to create world-class accessible experiences for their employees and customers. Our team of access consultants are able to work with teams of any size and from any sector, to achieve accessible and inclusive outcomes, so you can realise the benefits of creating a truly inclusive organisation.
Together, we are establishing Aotearoa as a thought leader, a visionary, and a global powerhouse in access innovation, and building a better New Zealand for everyone.Contact Us
