LOCATION CHANGE NOW IN F105
When you think of disability do you think of someone in a wheelchair? Or maybe a person with a white cane?
Demystifying Disability will bring together four panellists to discuss their lived experiences of disability, stereotypes that people have of those with their condition and how you can be a good ally to the Disabled community. There will also be a chance to ask your own questions at the end of the session.
To attend please register via Zoom in advance of the event here. While the session and panellists will be virtual, you can join the panel from F105 on Talbot Campus if you have trouble accessing the internet from home.
