Leadership and (dis)ability

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


JHB Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus


We are all entitled to participate fully in society, but people with disabilities routinely face barriers which can make this an insurmountable challenge. Ossie and Alex will explore, with the audience, how to turn rights into reality for people with disabilities.


Some of the questions they will be addressing are:

  • Where are the disabled leaders?
  • How do we think of leadership and disability?
  • How can organisations shift the mindset and culture in how leadership is viewed and understood?


Ossie is an Equality & Diversity Consultant with several years’ experience as a trainer and specialist advisor. Alex is a founding director of the Oxford University Disability Law and Policy Project.


This event is part of Disability History Month 2018 at Brookes.
