Power of Disability Conference

21st January - 22nd January

AHEAD and the Union of Students in Ireland are happy to present the Power of Disability Conference 2021, kindly supported by the Higher Education Authority.

This two day event will include discussions, presentations and feedback sessions encouraging students with disabilities to be leaders on their own campuses and provide information for students and Students’ Union officers on the issues facing students with disabilities.

Day 1 of the conference will focus on disability in education. This day will feature sessions sharing research in the area of disability, workshops on disclosing a disability and looking at Universal Design for Learning. 

Day 2 of the event focuses on empowerment and constructive advocacy. We are delighted to welcome Minister Simon Harris, Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science to address the conference as part of this schedule. 

Registration is free to attend, but registration is limited so you must book a spot in advance.
