the word 'Disability' on red VERCIDA background

From 16-20 July, Network Rail is celebrating Disability week. Can do, our employee-run support Network for colleagues with disabilities are facilitating a week of events and activities to help us all think differently about disabilities, whether physical or mental, visible or non-visible, and how we can support colleagues in the work place or personally.

Each day, CanDo will be focusing on a specific theme to share knowledge, provide support and challenge the stereotypes of disability. By getting involved, colleagues can help us inspire #disabilityconfidence at Network Rail.

Why were you involved?

I am co-chair of CanDo (with Lucy Cashin) and we came up with the idea of a CanDo Disability Week due to our passion about inspiring disability confidence within Network Rail.  Currently, 1% of colleagues have shared their disability and we want to motivate colleagues further to bring their authentic self to work.

How have you thought differently about disability? 

We are both disabled and understand the impact that disability can have on your life. Being ‘ourselves at work’ – comfortable with sharing our stories – and proud of who we are, it has made life generally easier, made us happier and more successful. Hence, we want to help other colleagues as much as we can who may be going through similar transitions and inspire disability confidence within Network Rail.
