We may be focusing on disability as a main subject but disabled people do not appear and disappear in silos. We all have wants, desires, likes and dislikes. We may also identify as more than disabled. For eg; a Muslim man or a transgender woman.
In this forum category, this is your place to talk about areas of diversity and inclusion that are a huge part of a disabled person's identity
In many ways, the watercooler is inaccessible so we won't be referring to it as that here! However, this section is the section where you can talk about anything you like. Shoot the breeze! EastEnders… Robbie Williams… Fish and chips
As many of you know, as a disabled person, I am very comfortable with my disability. However for many, this is not the case. There are many reasons for this and many of them stem from an external perception of disability and opinion of what disabled people can achieve. I also feel that if I had a choice, I would not disclose a disability to an employer. This is not because I think I have something to hide but there are many ways that employees can discriminate against disabled people.
So, what about you? If you had a choice, would you disclose a disability to your employer?
