About this event

Join an expert panel with diverse backgrounds and perspectives as we discuss the multifaceted nature of disability, touching upon issues such as accessibility, representation, and the broader implications within the academic and professional spheres.

In line with the Athena SWAN and the Centre for Inclusive Societies and Economies (CISE) principles, this event focusses on the importance of creating an inclusive environment where diverse voices are not only acknowledged but also celebrated. This goes beyond compliance to deliver an ongoing commitment to creating spaces that embrace diversity and actively engage with the varied experiences of our community members.

The panel event will include an interactive Q&A session, providing attendees with an opportunity to further explore the topics discussed and engage directly with our panellists.

We look forward to our debate contributing to the ongoing dialogue surrounding disability awareness, as well as inform strategies to enhance inclusivity within our academic and professional realms.
