Recognising International Day of People with Disability

On Wednesday 30 November the Central Clinical School's (CCS) Gender Equity Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) Committee presented a Special Seminar with Professor Louise Purton (St Vincent's Institute of Medical Research) in recognition of International Day of People with Disability

Professor Purton generously shared her experiences as a disabled academic in STEMM and offered suggestions and tips on how we can make presentations, conferences, and publications more accessible to people with disability. As Louise pointed out, equity covers all types of underrepresented groups, not just women (and non-binary people).
