UoB celebrates Disability History Month 2021

Celebrate Disability History Month 2021 with us. 

Taking place from 18 November to 20 December, Disability History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the lives and achievements of disabled people as well as focussing on the barriers to equality that disabled people experience.

Each year the theme changes so we can all explore and challenge different issues that many disabled people experience. The themes for 2021 are:
• Disability and Hidden Impairment
• Disability Sex and Relationships

For the second year running, we’re delighted to support Disability History Month with a programme of events to provide space for conversations between both allies and disabled students around the above themes, and to celebrate the diversity of our University community.

Key events from UoB’s Disability History Month programme include:

  • Universalist and Specialist Approaches, Monday 22 November 22 (12.30pm), via Zoom.
  •  Inclusive Sex Education and Autism, Thursday 2 December 2 (4.30pm), via Zoom.
  • Fostering Friendships, Monday 6 December (1pm) via Zoom.
  • Marginalised families and autism: Understanding the experience of children and their families, Wednesday 8 December (6pm), via Zoom. 
  • The hidden voices of people with PMLD: focusing on meaningful relationships, Thursday 9 December, (4.30pm), via Zoom.

If you’re attending one of our sessions, you can join in the conversation on social media using the hashtags #DisabilityHistoryMonth #UKDHM in your posts.
