The ICED Disability Seminar Series and the LSHTM Equality and Diversity committee jointly present:
“So, you think you know about disability? The real disability-inclusive working environment by people who should know”
Speakers: Emmet de Monterey & Bernadette Gahan
Date: 10th February, 2016
About the Seminar:
4.5 % of the LSHTM staff have declared a disability. How confident are you that our workplace is disability inclusive, and what does this really mean? Join us for this joint seminar to debunk the myths around disability inclusion and to learn about disability confidence in the workplace. Our speakers will share their own experiences of disability in the workplace to promote best practice and ensure a disability-inclusive working environment for all.
