#WeThe15: Being disabled in the workplace and the value found in difference
We are partnering with Legal Cheek for a virtual student event exploring how to support colleagues with a disability, long term injury or condition to ensure a safe, inclusive, and open workplace where everyone can thrive. The definition of disability is wide and includes mental health conditions and people who are neurodivergent. In this event we will also discuss managing learning difficulties in the workplace, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.
We’ll be joined by our Global Director of Inclusion, Tiernan Brady, for a panel discussion with the firm’s disability network champions to discuss the firm’s recent involvement in the #WeThe15 campaign, career progression and workplace support at the firm and mental health and resilience in the face of adversity. The panel will close with an awe-inspiring keynote with Lauren Rowles (MBE), Paralympic gold medallist and motivational speaker.
This will be followed by networking in the following breakout rooms with our lawyers, future trainees and Enable representatives who will speak to you about their experiences of managing mental health and disability in the early phases of their career. Graduate Recruitment will also be available to answer your questions.
• Mental health support in the workplace
• Disclosing and talking about disability
• Application and workplace adjustments
• Imposter syndrome and confidence
The virtual event is free and open to all. Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the panel.
