I’m Shaun McKinney, I am 24 and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Business in Marketing Communication and Management. I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and am gay so I have been involved with various organisations and people within the disabled and GLBT communities. I am interested in the role that marketing and communication have in shaping the attitudes and behaviours of society towards people with disabilities as well as other minorities.
I am also keen to explore the economic opportunities and barriers for disabled people as well as New Zealand as a whole. I feel privileged and honoured to join the other participants in the inaugural Be. Leadership programme.
