Workplaces that work for everyone. managing disabilities in the workplace: openness, adjustments and everything else!


Breakfast Seminar

Tuesday 4th December; 9.00am – 10.30am

Hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills; Central London

Whilst progressive employers recognise the importance of providing support for all of their employees to enable them to unlock their potential, knowing what types of support and adjustments to provide for those with a disability isn’t always clear. And neither is knowing how to source them and how they will actually work in practice.

To enlighten you on these questions we will be joined by individuals who will share their own experiences of disability and how they manage this in the workplace. The focus will be on the adjustments that have been made for them in the workplace, the purpose of them and the benefits they provide. As well as enabling you to learn more about the various support and adjustments that can be provided you will also have the opportunity to learn about the different approaches that organisations take to disability and how they support their disabled employees.

There will be plenty of opportunities to engage in conversations with these individuals, to ask the questions you have, and have the chance to learn more about subjects that are currently a mystery to most of us. The session will build your knowledge in order that you have a better understanding of certain disabilities, as well as of adjustments and considerations in the workplace.


o   Disability and student life
Helen Cooke, Director, My Plus Consulting, will start the seminar by sharing some insights she has gained in this area.
