ROW | Webinar – Long Covid, hidden disabilities and chronic illnesses: Rethinking wellbeing at work
Free | Wed 6 July, 10am – 11am (NZST)
Invisible or hidden disabilities are disabilities that are not immediately apparent. They are typically chronic illnesses that impact day-to-day living. As many as one in 10 of us could have one. They range from learning differences, deafness, autism, traumatic brain injury, bipolar disorder, diabetes, ADHD, fibromyalgia, arthritis, anxiety, sleep disorder, Crohn’s disease, and many more. With Long Covid becoming an issue that is going to affect an increasing number of people over the next few years, wellbeing managers are going to need to understand and plan for this emerging issue.
Join ROW founder Sarah (who has fibromyalgia) and UK-based disability advocate and author of Hidden Disabilities and Conditions; Creating an Inclusive Workplace Ted Smith as we discuss chronic illness management and how that impacts wellbeing.
1. Guest interview: We’ll start this session with the guest interview, facilitated by Sarah McGuinness.
2. Group discussion: After the interview, then we’ll open the ‘floor’ for discussion, and we welcome any questions you have about the interview topic.
3. News: We’ll invite you to share any news or wins, or ask workplace wellbeing questions of the group. Sarah will also share updates from the world of workplace wellbeing.
The event is open to members of ROW Network and ROW Gold only.
