Event Date

I will be a guest speaker at the Communication Workers' Union's Disability Conference in Leeds on Saturday 8 November.

I will be speaking about Autism in the workplace, looking at why autism is a trade union issue, myths and facts about autism, relevant laws, and organising against discrimination and in support of workers with autism or with autistic dependents.

Please note that the times given for this event are the conference times, not the length of my speech! I'll be speaking and answering questions for about half and hour, either shortly before the lunch break or shortly afterwards.

For more details about the conference, please contact the CWU.
