At the beginning of 2013 EDN (Employers' Disability Network) was dissolved and the Be. Institute was identified as an organisation with vision, passion and energy to further develop the accessible employment movement. Be. Employed will continue EDN's legacy.

Since 2010 EDN's provision of information, advice and support has contributed to increased awareness of the inequities in employment practice in New Zealand and to the commitment by many employers to do better. The network achieved much and realised a multidimensional approach was needed to take the accessible employment movement to its next stage of sustainable and meaningful change.

Be. Employed to seeks create that change. The dynamic way we work will further the aims of EDN, convene new conversations, and support organisations to become leaders of a new accessible employment movement.
