Description


Employers Leading the way in supporting disability (Breakfast roundtable discussion)

Please join us for a breakfast meeting of our ENABLE Network focusing on (dis)ability in the legal sector. For this meeting we are speaking with employers who are making progress on creating inclusive workplaces for employees with disabilities. This will be an interactive discussion on what every employer can do to start or advance their firm’s policies, networks, training, and leadership in this space.

The InterLaw Diversity Forum was proud to launch our ENABLE (Dis)ability Network in December 2017 to support those with disabilities in the legal sector, as well as their allies and supporters.

The co-leads of ENABLE are:

Adelina Ferrara, Executive Director, Deutsche Bank

Katherine Ramo, Associate, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang

Daniel Winterfeldt, Chair, InterLaw Diversity Forum

We will have bi-monthly meetings during 2018 with speakers, workshops, and lectures followed by professional networking. This builds on the success of our ten-year old ground-breaking LGBT+ Network, and our award-winning one-year old Race & Ethnicity (BAME) Network.

We know that creating a safe space for diverse members of the profession and their allies to share best practice, hear inspirational stories, and to create informal mentoring relationships can have a transformative effect on the legal sector.

We think this that now is a critical time to be supporting the broad range of people in the legal sector with work-impacting disabilities and to support their recruitment, retention and promotion, while implementing our best practice from our existing networks to have a measurable impact.


Speakers:

Graeme Whippy MBE, Business Disability Consultant, Channel 4

Adelina Ferrara, Executive Director, Deutsche Bank

Katherine Ramo, Associate, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang
