Series 2, Episode 4: Regional and Rural Australia

In this second series of Inform, we’ll be discussing accessibility. But not as you might know it. From the workplace to the classroom, we’ll be asking what accessibility means and why it matters. We’ll also be discussing some strategies and tips for things like advocating for accessibility or accessing information on assistive technology. Accessibility in regional and rural Australia Around 7 million people live in regional and rural Australia, that’s nearly a third of the population. For people with disabilities, living regionally presents some unique challenges. Chief among them access to services and supports. But, despite the challenges, there’s plenty of good. The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia Survey revealed that people living in non-urban areas generally have higher levels of life satisfaction. That’s something our guests in this episode can attest to. In episode four, we spoke with David Timms. David is a complete spinal cord paraplegic. He lives i...

Dr Whitburn lectures in inclusive education at Deakin university but he also has first hand experience in what it means to pursue higher education when you have a disability. "Now that I work at a university, I’ve definitely come to understand that one person’s request for support in one way or another., it doesn’t speak to a weakness, it speaks to a strength in some ways to say, look, if I had this bit of extra time, or if I had someone reading me this material, or if I had someone scanning it for me, for example, it would make my life a lot easier" — Dr Ben...

Series 2, Episode 1: Advocating for accessibility

In this second series of Inform, we’ll be discussing accessibility. But not as you might know it. From accessible workplaces, to assistive technology, we’ll be asking what accessibility means and why it matters. We'll also be discussing some strategies and tips for things like advocating for accessibility or accessing information on assistive technology. Accessibility in the workplace In episode one, we spoke with Daniel, a lawyer who has experience advocating for his own accessibility. For Daniel, accessibility is about welcoming people in. He discusses how his vision impairment impacts his experience navigating the world and talks about what he did to advocate for his own accessibility in the workplace. He also has some tips and advice for anyone in a similar situation. I think for me, accessibility comes back to that idea that you want to welcome people in rather than shut people out. And by acknowledging that that's not easy, that's part of it. But by acknowledging that it's n...
