Ability Programme: Creating Your Openness Statement

Venue: Online

This event has ended.

Bookings for this session are now closed.

Being open about your disability with an employer can be a daunting prospect.  This workshop considers what is meant by 'disclosure' and takes an in-depth look at how to create an openness statement that you are confident to share with an employer at any stage of the process. 

The workshop will cover:

- What is 'disclosure'

- The reasons why you might want to be open with an employer about a disability

- What is an openness statement - how to create one and why they are important

- Adjustments - what does the term mean and what can you ask for



You will be sent the link to access the session on Collaborate at least 24 hours before the start time.  Please make sure that you have signed up with the correct email address to ensure you receive the link.

If you require any adjustments for the sessions (e.g. captions, off-white slides, slides in advance), please let Lucy Crittenden know at at least 2 working days in advance so that we have time to implement them.

*This event is only open to Birkbeck students and graduates*
