Held at King's this week, Dialogues on Disability saw participants hold discussions and debate and hear from experts. Representatives from King's Disability and Advisory Service, Careers & Employability, King's Sport and King's Student Union spoke about how King's is working to constantly improve the university experience for disabled staff and students. The group explored topics from inclusion in all aspects of university life, mentoring and pathways to success after graduation.
During the week-long programme, the group visited forward-thinking organisations including Transport for London, the British Council, the Royal National Institute for the Blind and the National Portrait Gallery to learn about, and take inspiration from, the innovative ways in which UK institutions are addressing issues around accessibility for a large and varied range of end-users. The week culminated in a meeting with Baroness Sheila Hollins at the House of Lords to discuss the role of Government in promoting the rights of disabled people.
