According to Scope, approximately 23% of working age adults have some form of disability. This webinar was held on 21 September 2023.

According to the British Dyslexia Association, up to 15% of the adult population may have dyslexia or another Specific Learning Difficulty.

This means that it is highly likely in our projects we are working with or for someone who is neurodivergent or has a disability.

By making small changes to our practice we can increase the likelihood of project success by enabling all stakeholders to contribute their full potential.

Content covered:

  • Definitions (Disability, Equality, Neuro-Diversity)
  • As project mangers we rely on documentation for everything; quality assurance, scope, PIDs, planning, even meeting notes. How do we make our documents more accessible so that people use them?
  • Meetings should be a protected and productive time. What can you do to make sure people are welcomed and contributing?
  • In person events – How do you ensure everyone feels welcome to attend – and is able to be fully involved?
  • Top tips for products & services design

No prior knowledge is required.
