Tue 2 Jul 2024


This EDI series supports the University’s EDI strategy concerned with promoting disability awareness and supportive and humanised workplace.

This series is being delivered by Dr Zrinka Mendas.

  1. Toward a Better Understanding of Sensory and Learning Impairments (April)
  2. Empathy and Disability: Friends or Foes? (May)
