Changing the Conversation
Fri 14 October 2016, 10:00 – 12:00 BST
Everybody has a big part to play in changing the conversation around disability. And it needs to change. Disabled people remain significantly underrepresented in the labour market and pretty invisible as consumers of services and products. The ‘purple pound’ is worth £212 Billion a year to the UK economy and this session will look at the art of what is possible. Drawing on research, lived experience and your own perceptions it will highlight tools, tactics and common sense approaches to making disability work for you.
