Workshop

Wednesday 17th October; 9.30am – 12.00pm

Hosted by Shell; Central London

Taking the first step on any new journey is always the hardest and this is never truer than when starting your disability confidence journey. From understanding what is covered by the term ‘disability’ to understanding the impact that having a disability can have on a person, the subject raises numerous questions and challenges; and that is before we have even got started on implementing appropriate support and adjustments

Having covered what constitutes a disability, delegates will have the opportunity to think about their business case for becoming disability confident before moving on to build their understanding about this talent pool and particularly the skills and abilities they bring to the organisation. We will also look at how to create a culture of openness both during recruitment and in the workplace itself, before moving on to look at how to most effectively provide appropriate support. 

This workshop is ideal for those who are new to the area of disability as well as those who have been working in this area for a while and wish to consider some of the key issues from a fresh perspective. The workshop will be designed to enable delegates share best practice and also learn from each other.
