We are proud to be sponsoring the National Association of Disabled Staff Networks (NADSN) Conference at the University of London (UCL) on the 13th July! This will be a fantastic one-day event with some great speakers and suppliers, who will be showing the latest updates and products for individuals with additional needs in the workplace.
Who are NADSN?
NADSN (National Association of Disabled Staff Networks) are a network that connects and represents disabled staff across all networks. It gives them a platform where experiences and good practices can be shared and to discuss the support available for members.
This organisation is focussed on the tertiary education sector (i.e. universities, colleges) and is opened to any individual and organisation who are interested in the equality of disabled staff.
– Patrick Johnson; the Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, at the University of Manchester, who will be talking about his experience of equality, diversity and inclusion in Higher Education.
– Jane Cordell and Hormoz Ahmadzadeh; the directors of Result CIC will both be speaking about the “Achieving Your Potential” programme of coaching and development training which they deliver for disabled staff at universities and organisations across the country.
– Nicole Brown, Lecturer in Education and the Academic Head of Learning and Teaching at UCL will speak about her research and work on ableism in academia and the outcomes of her first Ableism in Academia conference.
– Dr Christine Rivers is the Lead for Equality and Health Inequalities at NHS England. She will be presenting the ground-breaking NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES), which will be launched this autumn.
The keynote speech will be presented by Professor Anna Lawson (Director of the Centre for Disability Studies, University of Leeds). Anna is an expert on Brexit and its impact on the rights of disabled people – this will be an unmissable talk that relates to us all!
We are proud to be able to offer a one-stop service for the workplace, which includes universities, organisation and individuals who need extra support to overcome their difficulties. Our workplace adjustment services includes providing assessments, the equipment, Assistive Technology training and personal one-to-one coaching if there is a specific difficulty that the employee needs help with.
We are pleased to be a sponsor of NADSN and to have the opportunity to showcase the best assistive technology that can be used in the workplace. We will be present with a trainer so you can have your questions answered, whether that is our process or the AT that we provide!
