It has been said a thousand times already, but this year has been like no other. Blind Citizens Australia had planned to deliver a symposium around inclusivity within the workplace, focusing on changing employer perceptions about people who are blind or vision impaired at venues in both Sydney and Melbourne. We have ‘pivoted’ (another 2020 word to add to our lexicon) and will now deliver an online interactive workshop that showcases inclusion strategy with real life examples. Join us to hear what has and hasn’t worked well in developing and delivering an accessible workplace, particularly in light of remote working environments, and participate in a forum where you can ask those questions you’ve always wanted to in a ‘You Can’t Ask That!’ style session.
Our panel will include:
Tuesday 24th November 2020 – 11:00am – 12:30pm AEDT
- Matt O’Kane MBA, Director, Notion Digital Forensics
- Pam Spelling, Service Coordinator-Capacity Building, Brisbane South Disability Service, Uniting Care.
- Jonathon Craig, Policy and Advocacy Intern, Vision 2020
- Janine Sherrard, General Manager Policy, Advocacy and Engagement, Vision 2020
Wednesday 25th November 2020 – 2:00pm – 3:30pm AEDT
- Jaci Armstrong, Non-Executive Director at Accessible Arts
- Doug McGinn, Disability Liaison Officer , University of Tasmania
- Colin Clark, Head Student Accessibility and Wellbeing, University of Tasmania
