50 Million Voices is the campaign bringing together leaders from across the world to collaborate, share good practice, and transform the world of work for people who stammer.
Societal bias means that millions of people who stammer are either unemployed or in jobs which are well below their potential. Employers and colleagues often falsely equate intelligence and excellent communication skills with speaking fluently. They may be missing out on the very strengths they need in the workforce.
Initiatives in different countries are seeking to change this successfully; others are looking to get started. 50 Million Voices, launched in spring 2019, aims to speed up and increase this change.
Founder Iain Wilkie, formerly a senior partner at EY, explains more in an article just published on the Stamma website: 50 Million Voices (stamma.org).
