Geoffrey Robertson QC, Human Rights lawyer and author, well known for his television 'Hypothetical' series, leads a forum about the issues associated with recruiting and working with people with disabilities.
This 'Hypothetical' is skilfully facilitated by Geoffrey Robertson as he draws out the varying perspectives of a diverse panel of participants through strategic role playing.
Discussions highlight the myths and steroetypes attributed to people with disabilities; the focus on 'ability' rather than 'disability'; and the range of disabilities both visible and hidden. Discrimination law is illustrated by practical scenarios focusing on recruitment and employment policies and practices.
The panel comprises a mixed group of commentators and executives, many with a disability perspective, who work in a variety of sectors, including arts, marketing and sport, in addition to representatives from political, human rights and employer organisations.
This DVD is a joint project by the Human Resources and Program Production portfolios of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, as part of the implementation of objectives and strategies of the ABC's Disability Action Plan.
