Yesterday, Gary attended an excellent online event launching the new Disability Reporting Handbook. Joe-Anne Kek-Pamenter from the platform’s Advisory Board did graphic work for the Handbook.
It is a terrific resource intended to inform respectful media reporting about Australians who live with a disability. This is a matter of respect, dignity, justice and inclusion. There are some great stories to tell from the disability entrepreneurship space, but we need the media reporting to be respectful and understanding, with empathy.
This resource was very much based upon the principle that you shouldn’t be speaking about us, WITHOUT US.
Great work @Joe-Anne Kek-Pamenter! We are so incredibly grateful to have you as a member of the Board and sharing your talent in helping us design material.
