A view from a different perspective

Face made up of question marksWe all have different experiences and view life from different points of view. We also know that seeing it from someone else’s perspective helps us build understanding, confidence, resilience and appreciation of others and helps us be more inclusive.

In collaboration with some of the networks we are running a series of awareness sessions where you can gain an insight into the lives of others and learn about the support that is available for people who may have specific needs.

These sessions are opportunities for civil servants to connect and collaborate across departmental boundaries helping to make us a truly inclusive workplace.

In this session we have speakers from Civil Service Deaf and Hard of Hearing Network, Civil Service Visual Network, the Civil Service Stammering Network, a:genda and the Public Sector Neurodiversity Network.

When: 27 June, 10:00am to 12:00pm

Where: Room G14, 1 Horse Guards Road, London, SW1A 2HQ

Whether you identify with the subject of the networks, manage or work with someone who does, you are welcome to join the conversation and share your viewpoint too.

Book your place on Eventbrite

Please note that you will need to seek approval from your line manager to attend and any travel and subsistence costs must be met by your own department.

    Are there plans for this event to be held elsewhere in the country at all - would love to attend, but unfortunately can't get to London on that day.

      Hi Kath,

      Yes we are holding similar events around the country, they probably won't be called the same thing but will still be aimed at raising understand of differing needs and perspectives so if you haven't already do sign up for alerts to get news of these events.

      Hi Pieter, as with all our events if people have requirements that would help them to attend, if they let us know and we will endeavour to make any reasonable adjustments.
