We’re delighted that Amy McDonald will be presenting at Disability – the New Ability, an event brought to you by the Employer’s Network for Equality & Inclusion.
“One in six people in the UK have a disability – why are those numbers not reflected in our workforces? Progress in tackling this has been limited.
This event brings together leading thinkers and experts to explore the key issues and challenges facing employers in relation to attracting, recruiting, retaining and developing those with disabilities in the workplace. This conference provides an opportunity to share best practice on a range of disability related issues including mental health, autism and reasonable adjustments. Delegates can discuss their challenges and learn about other organisations and their industry’s approaches.” enei
