Friday 3 December 2021 marks the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Observed since 1992, it is a day aimed at promoting the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society.
To celebrate and promote awareness of this important day, Partner Emma Bartlett and Senior Associate Wonu Sanda are joined on this podcast by Husnara Begum, a former City corporate lawyer turned career management specialist and skills trainer, who has severe rheumatoid arthritis and is an incredible advocate for all forms of diversity and inclusion, to discuss how this year’s theme, ‘building back better‘, can be applied in the workplace context and, in particular, in the legal profession.
Drawing on Husnara Begum’s personal insights on the impact of her own disability and her experiences in the legal profession, this podcast explores how employers, business leaders, and senior managers can better recruit, support, and promote people with disabilities in the workplace.
