Disability and Diversity: taking the twin track to inclusion
Professor Tom Shakespeare, Professor of Disability Research, Norwich Medical School
Tuesday 25 October 2016
Lyndsey Stewart Lecture Theatre, Edinburgh Napier University, Craiglockhart Campus, Glenlockhart Road, Edinburgh, EH14 1DJ
Lecture begins at 5.30pm followed by refreshments
How much is required to enable disabled people to participate fully and flourish? Other equality campaigns demand a level playing field. But is removing barriers enough to ensure all disabled people succeed, given the diversity of disability? Prof. Shakespeare has broad experience in health, education, employment, and has worked in the UK and in developing countries. He will draw on his academic, policy and practice experience to explore what it takes to achieve equality.
