Maurice Flynn

Profile image of Maurice Flynn I live in the great Waikato city of Hamilton. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations back in 2016 and I now work in the disability sector. I hold roles that promote disability leadership and access.

I have a passion for raising awareness of the barriers that inadequately built environments create. I’m also interested in how the attitudes from a lack of understanding of the need for access can affect a community’s potential for growth. I hope to see the influence of universal design grow to create a more inclusive world for everyone to participate in, fully and equally.

I am lucky to be able to voice this from my own lived experience. I’m grateful to be able to share a space for collaborating with people that have similar journeys with disability. Being a part of Be. Leadership 2019 has helped grow the strength of my voice. I will be using this experience to support others to find their strong voice too.
