Disability History Month begins today (16 November – 16 December) and our Disabled Staff Network, EDI team and JMSU will be hosting an event on Friday 2 December.
To align with International Day of Persons with a Disability, within Disability History Month, all staff and students are invited to an event in the Student Life Building from 10am – 12pm.
This year’s theme is ‘Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fueling an accessible and equitable world.’
The event will draw on this to consider how we can create an inclusive university environment for disabled people/ people with disabilities. Staff members, Lucinda Matthew-Jones and Pete Quinn, and student. Bethany Donaghy, will offer personal reflections and paper discussions on different topics, and refreshments will also be provided.
