It’s a project with the Lawyers with Disabilities Division and the Law Society with three key aims:
Many of us will have at some point tried to ‘pass’ as more “able-bodied or minded”, whether you learnt to make eye-contact or practised the best way to shake hands.
These little coping mechanisms may seem a harmless way to ‘fit in’ but they can be tiring.
We must contend with certain challenges, when to disclose our disabilities and make disability more visible and when to ‘pass’ and give society the impression of more ‘able-bodiedness.’
The choice, to be or not to be ‘disabled’, has important implications for the way we think about disability and identity in the workplace.
Almost everyone, that’s why we want to run this project!
It’s not just on us!
Organisations tend to require disclosure before an individual can have the option on ‘reasonable adjustments’ but what if many of these adjustments were just options, offered to everyone and available to all!
