Recognising Potential – Discussion Paper launch with Lord Shinkwin

Demos, in association with Conservative Peer Lord Shinkwin, is launching a discussion paper reflecting on the experiences of disabled graduates in the UK, as we approach the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

Despite the progress that has been made, there are many barriers, including using public transport and finding accessible housing, that prevent disabled graduates from equally participating in the workforce. Join us as, through a series of short speeches, we discuss what needs to be done to better support disabled graduates, and demonstrate how embracing workplace diversity can contribute to better business. Speeches will run from 6pm-6:30pm after which there will be time for informal networking.

Speakers include:

  • Polly Mackenzie (Chief Executive, Demos)
  • Lord Shinkwin (Conservative Peer)
  • George Relph (Researcher, Lord Shinkwin’s Office)
  • Madhuri Pai, (Global Diversity and Inclusion Director, Unilever)
  • Dr Hannah Barnham-Brown

Date: Tuesday 2nd July

Time: 5:30pm – 7pm

Location: Thatcher room, Portcullis House, SW1A 0AA
