Jane Hatton

Jane founded Evenbreak in 2011, a specialist job board run by disabled people for disabled people, helping inclusive employers to attract disabled candidates across the employment market. Jane’s work has been crucial in helping employers to connect with disabled people who are actively seeking careers opportunities. Jane herself has a spinal condition and speaks from experience, setting up Evenbreak to address all of the concerns and frustrations she had experienced when talking to employers. Jane works tirelessly to open up the job market for disabled people and delivers the business case for attracting a diverse pool of talent. Described as an ‘inspiration’, Jane has begun to change the way disability is viewed in the workplace and has created many employment opportunities for Evenbreak candidates. Jane has spent her entire working life championing equal opportunities and fighting for the rights of those in disadvantaged situations, and for that reason she thoroughly deserves to be featured on the diversity champion shortlist.
