Disabled members' conference

Email us if you would like to join UCU's network for disabled members.

Diary date The annual equality groups conference 2020 will be held held on line  from Thursday 3 - Saturday 5 December.

The disabled members' conference will be on Friday 4 December 14:00 - 17:00

Disability, Covid and beyond

It's time to organise! The working lives of Disabled people has changed dramatically since the start of the year, blighted by structural inequalities, the disproportionate impact of Covid-19, has exacerbated the failure of employers to provide reasonable adjustments and appropriate support for Disabled workers.

The annual conference will look at the issues raised by the pandemic, the emerging landscape and what the future will look like for Disabled workers.  Our keynote speaker will be Zita Holbourne, PCS Vice President, who will address the conference on the challenges and issues for disabled workers and the fight for disability equality, as well as giving her perspective of being a black disabled woman.
