Back in August 2014, EmployAbility was proud to launch a series of masterclasses around Disability Excellence in Practice. The first event saw over 15 different organisations attend ready to learn about how to improve and implement disability inclusive practices into their recruitment processes. The follow up event in November covering disclosure was equally well attended and received!
We are now delighted to announce the third event in the series – Disability Excellence in Practice: A Masterclass on Non-visible Disabilities and Mental Health. Kindly hosted by Clifford Chance, the event will cover:
- Definition of disability – the scope of disability in relation to non-visible disabilities
- The law in context – a brief overview of the Equality Act 2010, including the impact of non-visible disabilities on the employer’s duty to make reasonable adjustments in the recruitment process and the workplace
- Leadership with a spotlight on Mental Health – what can your organisation do to encourage more understanding and openness around mental health and other non-visible disabilities
- Identifying effective and relevant adjustments to enable potential and existing disabled and non-disabled employees to perform to the best of their ability
- Recognising the signs – identifying when an employee is experiencing difficulties due to a non-visible disability
- Start the conversation – when you suspect or know an applicant or existing employee has a non-visible disability and would benefit from doing an application or work differently
- Personal stories and interactive scenarios – group based work on real life examples.
The event will help improve understanding of non-visible disabilities and their impact on recruitment and the business environment. It will also cover the context of the Equality Act 2010 in relation to non visible disabilities and an employer’s duty to make reasonable adjustments. Delegates will be able to develop their knowledge and confidence in relation to these particular disabilities as well as disability disclosure and reasonable adjustments. Best practice and experiences will be discussed with peers and other relevant professionals.
The class is made up of practical guidance and advice for attraction recruitment, and retention of talented disabled applicants and employees, small focus group discussions to share experiences and enhance learning and interactive exercises to help build on existing knowledge.
