The IP Inclusive Midlands Network and IP Ability are delighted to invite you to an online seminar focusing on reasonable adjustments for disabled people in the IP sector, including adjustments required because of changes to work as a result of Covid-19. The seminar will be hosted by IP Ability committee member Kerry Russell at Shakespeare Martineau, who will be joined by three speakers:

  • Ewan Carr, an employment lawyer at Shakespeare Martineau, will discuss an employer’s legal obligations under the Equality Act;
  • Fran Worrall, HR Manager at Marks & Clerk, will talk about practical examples of putting reasonable adjustments into practice; and
  • Natasha Hirst, journalist and disability researcher from the Legally Disabled project at Cardiff University, will discuss the experiences of lawyers who have requested reasonable adjustments in the legal sector.

At the end of the session there will be an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences.
