About this episode

International Day for People with Disability (IDPwD) is marked annually on 3 December around the world, and aims to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.

Learning difficulties are a common form of disability experienced by many families, with between 1 and 3 students in every NSW classroom experiencing difficulties with learning. This year, the disABILITY Network are pleased to be raising awareness of the challenges, barriers and opportunities for people who live with learning difficulties by way of podcast interview. In this fascinating discussion, Jennie Mansfield (Partner, Sydney) sits down with Ashurst-alum Georgina Perry (Executive Officer, SPELD NSW) who shares her personal journey of living with dyslexia and dysgraphia whilst being a corporate lawyer and how it led her to her current role at SPELD NSW, an organisation supporting children and adults with specific learning difficulties. Georgina also shares information on what adjustments can be made to help individuals living with learning difficulties to thrive in the workplace. This podcast aims to challenge the way you think about disability and hopes to foster a more inclusive and accessible workplace.
