My Disability Isn't a Negative, It's A Part Of Me

Holly Woodward | Posted 27.09.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Holly Woodward

The media are slowly improving with greater representation and visibility but really the way disabled people are represented needs to be more carefully considered. Producers and editors need to ensure they are represented as an equal member of society and that their own stories are represented in a way that they are happy with. I don't believe disability always has to be viewed as a negative thing.

While the focus has largely been on big data's promise, less attention has been paid to how companies should go about putting it into practice - because although the majority appreciates its potential, it's a minority that fully understands how to roll out the technology.

Mind the Gap

It looks unlikely that the job market will ever become tame but that does not mean it cannot be bested. It is up to us as individuals to bring as much as we can to the table when it comes to the assault course of assessment centres and interviews faced when we graduate from university. And so as repetitive as it may seem, it really is worth minding the gap.

I have temporarily swapped slovenly student life for that of a suited city slicker. With my track record in high heels, "city-stumbler" would be a more accurate description. I identify with this term, a "Helena original", not only due to my distinct lack of work experience but also as a result of my natural clumsiness in the workplace.
