Code: BH/22/0063 Disability in the workplace for managers (EVENT FULL)

Over the last year we have seen significant changes in the way we work, socialise, and learn. While organisations find new ways to adapt, it is important to ensure that employees continue to be supported and empowered to make a positive contribution in the workplace - that includes employees with disabilities.

With 1 in 5 people having a disability, and 1 in 7 people having a neurodiverse condition, most organisations already benefit from the skills and abilities that disabled employees bring to the workplace.

Barriers, such as widespread lack of awareness and adopting stereotypes, improper use of technology, work environments and a lack of inclusive practice in everyday activities and communication can have a moderating effect on employee engagement, and performance and subsequently affect the way staff engage with colleagues and clients.

This workshop will include case studies based on situations that may be familiar in the workplace. We aim to create a safe and open virtual environment that encourages you to engage with the course material, ask questions and work through case studies and scenarios to enhance your learning experience.

Code: BH/21/1369 Stalking awareness: Recognise, Respond and the Law, and Cyber Enabled Stalking

Stalking is a serious public protection and public health issue that affects the lives of an estimated 5,053,000 individuals every year. This means an ever-increasing pressure at grassroot level to respond effectively and efficiently to reports and disclosures of stalking as well as developing a more comprehensive multiagency model to manage the risk posed by stalkers. In turn, it inevitably means a need to improve knowledge, skills and access in this complex area.

Stalking campaigns are often build on small, seemingly isolated and low-level crimes. Early, well informed multiagency interventions are central to increase safety and wellbeing in addition to reducing reoffending and re-victimisation. Further challenges come in the way perpetrators are finding ever more innovative ways to target their victims, especially with the rise in cyber offending, and the significant amount of electronic tracking devices available for very little cost, and the increase in social media and web-based activities.
