Disability, Confidence and Talent

Hosted by Bank of America Merrill Lynch

The workshop will include the following areas:

  • Understanding what is included under the term ‘disability’.
  • Knowledge of duties and responsibilities under The Equality Act.
  • Building confidence in our language and behaviours when interacting with disabled people.
  • Managing disability in the workplace: implementing adjustments.
  • Exploring some of the key issues.

The workshop will be delivered by Helen Cooke, who will draw upon her personal experiences of being disabled to bring the subject to life.

The workshop will take an interactive style using a blend of discussion, group work and feedback in an environment set up to be supportive. Delegates will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions about disability that they may previously have not felt comfortable to ask. The workshop will provide the delegates with a number of practical proven solutions to common challenges faced in attracting, recruiting and managing disabled employees.
