By | Disability, Politics | No Comments

“Corporate responsibility is the view that a corporation ought to deliver social and environmental dividends while pursuing its primary economic interests.” “In a sustainable society, corporations optimise the development of economic, social, environmental and governance capital to produce diverse community dividends.” Those aren’t the words of a not-for-profit or left-leaning…

By | Disability, Politics, Writing Folio | No Comments

I had two articles on national online publications in December. Both are about medical/disability issues. One’s meant to be funny, one’s serious. Enjoy, cud-chuckers!
