Event details

For too long, the world has positioned disabled people as ‘other’. Stigma and stereotypes have prevented our society from engaging with this thriving community in a meaningful way, and embedded a fear of ‘getting it wrong’ that often stops us from taking action altogether. It’s time to let go of that fear.

This event is designed for people and organisations who want to be a better ally and support the disability community, but don’t quite know where to start.

Join award-winning writer and communication consultant Pippa Stacey to learn more about the barriers disabled people face in society, helpful and unhelpful ways to respond to them, and actionable tips to help build a world that’s more inclusive for all.

Find out more about Pippa’s background on her blog, Life Of Pippa.
