The final program to launch in this series is Inclusive Agenda, presented by Vivian Schenker. The program adds to that of Disability News, New Voices, Activated Arts, all introduced over the past year. It adds to that of established disability-focused programs: Ablequest and Animates.

Inclusive Agenda offers a platform for decision-makers, researchers and innovators to discuss the major current and proposed initiatives that affect people with a disability; those who are elderly, or those who are marginalised. The first episode will see Robert Fitzgerald, NSW Ageing and Disability Commissioner, interviewed on the program.

This interview is to highlight the United Nations, International Day of People with Disability on 3 December. This day is celebrated internationally and aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and to celebrate their achievements and contributions.

Tune in to a special interview between General Manager Sancha Donald and Inclusive Agenda presenter Vivian Schenker on Wednesday 2 December during the morning Breakfast program. The first episode of Inclusive Agenda will air on Sunday 13 December at 1.30pm (ADST).
