Accessibility is not an optics issue or a choice it is a necessity
If you say I have special needs ... then just say the word disabled. Euphemisms only fuel ableism. Disability is not a dirty word. Haben Girma

Subject: [NADSN] Disabled Women in Academia Online Panel Event 11th Dec 2-3 get your tickets!
Caution: This message was sent from outside the University of Manitoba.
I just wanted to advertise a collaborative event for DHM. This is a collaboration between DMU, Royal Holloway University of London and the Women in Academia Support Network. I have been working on this with Kelly Pickard-Smith and Amy Bonsall both great people. I couldn't have done it without them!
The event takes place on the 11th December 2023 between 2-3pm online and is a panel discussion on the experiences of disabled female academics in academia. It consists of:
Professor Deborah Johnston (Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, London South Bank University)
Professor Anica Zeyen (Professor in Entrepreneurship and Sustainability and Vice-Dean EDI of the School of Business and Management at Royal Holloway University of London)
Professor Anna Lawson (Professor in Law, University of Leeds)
Dr Jennifer Leigh (Reader in Creative Practices for Social Justice)
Dr Meredith Wilkinson (I am not writing about myself)
Zein Al Maha Oweis (PhD candidate, University of Glasgow)
As you will see we have covered the whole career range. The reason for this is we wanted to have a discussion which enabled us to discuss different stages of the career. There is lots of excellent work out there on gender in academia and disability in academia but very little on the intersection of disability and gender. It is hoped this panel gets that conversation started.
Here is the link to sign up . The event is free and virtual and open to all:
