Tuesday 30 November, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually
Legal Cheek is partnering with Clifford Chance for a virtual student event exploring how to support colleagues with a disability, long term injury or condition to ensure a safe, inclusive, and open workplace where everyone can thrive.
The definition of disability is wide and includes mental health conditions and people who are neurodivergent. In this event we will also discuss managing learning difficulties in the workplace, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates
We’ll be joined by Clifford Chance’s Global Director of Inclusion, Tiernan Brady, for a panel discussion with the firm’s disability network champions to discuss the firm’s recent involvement in the #WeThe15 campaign, career progression and workplace support at the firm and mental health and resilience in the face of adversity. The panel will close with an awe-inspiring keynote with Lauren Rowles (MBE), Paralympic gold medallist and motivational speaker. This one’s unmissable!
