LJMU supports International Day for Disabled Persons 2011
01 December 2011
1981 was designated by the United Nations as the International Year of Disabled Persons and since then, 3 December has been marked as the International Day of Disabled Persons.
As part of LJMU's plan to contribute to the day, we have produced a video clip on disability equality with contributions from LiverpoolSU, Student Advice and Wellbeing, Human Resources, Staff Disability Network and Sir Bert Massie (LJMU Governor and equality champion). The film highlights hidden impairments and the advantages of disclosing a disability. It is also a reminder of our duty to promote dignity and respect for all as we study and work in the University.
The video and audio recordings were supplied to LJMU Schools and Faculties to be made available to students and staff for use as part of their teaching and tutorials. University Student Advocates will also give out disability equality flyers. For the video and audio clips please click the following links:
