Transforming Disability Webinar - How Inclusion Benefits Everyone
A webinar on Transforming Disability: How Inclusion Benefits Everyone took place on February 23rd 2022. The webinar was part of the Inspiring Ideas @ Trinity webinar series and was produced by Trinity Development and Alumni in partnership with the Trinity Business Alumni.
Improving diversity and inclusion in the classroom and the workplace is a priority for universities and wider society. The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities (TCPID) gives students with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in a higher education programme designed to enhance their capacity to engage in society as independent adults. This webinar explored the transformational impact of inclusion for both employers and employees, and looked at changes companies are making in their approach to this issue.
Trinity alumnus, business leader and former Irish rugby international Hugo MacNeill has been a champion for TCPID for several years, working to connect the Centre with corporate partners and raise awareness of its work. Hugo led a discussion with Tara Doyle (Partner and Chair, Matheson), David McRedmond (CEO, An Post) and Marie Devitt (Pathways Coordinator, TCPID) on the life-changing work of TCPID, the benefits of inclusion in the workplace, and the latest thinking and actions from the corporate world on this issue. The panellists discussed inclusion in their own organisations, and offered advice to other companies on how to champion diversity and inclusion in the workplace and support Trinity’s work in this area.You can view the webinar in full here: To view other Trinity Development and Alumni webinars go to: www.tcd.ie/alumni/news-events/webinars/
