Welcome to Ainslee Hooper Consulting. A unique service helping create a better world by removing the invisible barriers that hinder disability inclusion.
In our rapidly changing world, customers, clients & patrons determine your success. However, the needs of people living with disabilities are often unintentionally overlooked. I take a distinctive holistic approach to disability inclusion that will unlock growth, understanding and awareness for your business or organisation.
As an Anthropologist specialising in disability inclusion, my rare skill set advances knowledge and solves human problems. I utilise qualitative research methods to identify your organisation’s specific needs. My innovative evaluative processes make sense of complexity from the ‘ground-up.’
Councils, disability service providers, public venues, sustainability service firms, and more consult with me to gain insight into human diversity. This invaluable service provides a unique perspective that translates research into practical strategies to improve outcomes for everyone.
Acknowledging my contribution to the disability sector and the wider business community, the Geelong Employment Award recognised me as the winner in the Employment category at the Geelong Awards for People with Disability 2020.
A PhD candidate in Anthropology at Deakin University, my research investigates the experiences of people with disabilities during the COVID19 pandemic and COVID “normal”.
A determined advocate, I am a Community Representative on the Access & Inclusion Advisory Committee for City of Greater Geelong, a board member for the Barwon Disability Resource Council, and an advisor on the Research Advisory Group for The Black Dog Institute on the ‘Women and Body Mapping Project’.
In my spare time, I compete in powerlifting with GPC Australia, with three gold medals under my belt for bench press.
Based in Geelong, I offer a range of bespoke services and customised solutions to suit your needs. Consult with me to engage your target audience and promote disability inclusion. As a result, you will optimise your return on investment and your commitment to social responsibility and disability inclusion.
