In recognition of International Day of People with Disability 2021, our CLCP Solicitor Tamara Bailey held an open training and information session. We thank Tamara for sharing her experience and perspective as a person with disability and running this important session. We have included her wrap-up of the session below:

Friday 3 December 2021 was International Day of People with Disability and the theme for this year was Leadership and Participation of Persons with Disabilities. As an employee of WSCLC Ltd and a person with disability, I took the opportunity to acknowledge the day by hosting an online training and information presentation. Staying true to the theme of the day, the presentation was designed to encourage communication between people with disability and their communities.

The first part of the session was an introduction to Disability Discrimination law with a focus on legal rights and responsibilities of people with disability, as well as government, employers, and businesses. The second part of the presentation focused on communication, handy hints, and tips to enhance interpersonal skills when communicating with people with people with disability.

As a person with disability, I also have a loud and forceful voice. International Day of People with Disability was a brilliant opportunity for me to celebrate with my support network within WSCLC, including a shout out to my volunteer legal assistant.

We do not need to wait until this one designated day to start the conversation
