disAbility Legal Network event to focus on visual impairments

The disAbility Legal Network (DLN) is hosting a webinar on visual impairments in employment and the legal sector in collaboration with Eversheds Sutherland.

The free event, taking place next Thursday 25 April, 2pm-3pm, will hear from two employment integration officers in Vision Ireland, Martina Melvan and Shane Merritt, who will discuss vision impairments in the workplace and workplace integration, assistive technology, reasonable accommodations and more.

It will also feature a panel discussion with Ryan Kelly, a senior legal counsel for Bauer Media Group and a member of the Disabled Solicitors’ Network advisory committee in the UK, and Sharon Grennan, a knowledge lawyer in Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and secretary of the Society of Visually Impaired Lawyers.

This panel will discuss how they navigated their careers with a visual impairment, and how our colleagues can be allies and support people with visual impairments.

“We hope you are available to join us for what promises to be a very interesting and informative discussion,” DLN said.
