Wednesday 23 September from 12pm to 1pm

This discussion, moderated by Associate Professor Jennifer Smith-Merry, reflects on the flexible ways of working that have been normalised in the COVID-19 pandemic and how we can think about this in relation to disability inclusion, from business organisational frameworks, to education pathways and training. 

Professor John Buchanan from the University of Sydney Business School recently completed a research project looking at disability, employment and pathways into employment. He has ideas about what the future of work could look like for people with disability. 

Dr Sheelagh Daniels-Mayes from the School of Education and Social Work offers insights on the online experience of work, including the increasing move and adoption of remote working. 

Penelope Pitcairn from the Workforce Development division is interested in micro aggression at work and how a digital workplace affects day-to-day interactions. 

Charles Humblet, Co- Chair, Disability at Work Network, will be sharing his insights into the power of staff networks to engage in strategic advocacy to create inclusive workplaces for people with disability.
