Strike the right note. Doing the right thing



Wednesday 15th November; 9.30am – 12.00pm

Hosted by Citi

For some of us the subject of disability is an uncomfortable one; we don’t always know what to say, what to do or how to act. When it comes to graduate recruitment it is this fear, in part, that has stopped us making the progress that we would have liked to have done. It has prevented us from engaging with students at campus events, making the appropriate adjustments during the recruitment process and sometimes even assessing individuals correctly. It’s now time to address this fear and start making real progress in this area.

During this workshop delegates will discuss what is appropriate in terms of language and behaviours; build their confidence to engage in conversations about providing support; and explore what is and is not appropriate to ask during interviews.

The workshop will be delivered in an interactive style and will provide the delegates with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and challenge what they are learning. The format will also enable delegates to learn from other recruiters working in this challenging space.
