This annual lecture series celebrates the achievements of disabled people. The University is committed to establishing an inclusive environment, and we hope that this lecture series will be inspiring and empowering for everyone, particularly for our disabled staff and students. We hope that it will also increase understanding of the experiences of people living with a disability and of the creative and flexible support that may help them to flourish. The events are organised by the Equality and Diversity Unit and the Disability Advisory Group.
