Academics w disabilities so often face such ludicrous misconceptions re equal opps in their work environment (conferences, job market, teaching etc) it makes me want to attach this pic to my email signature. It shouldn't need explaining! @cat_oakley @AcademicAbleism @acaprecariat
And let me be clear: the situation is not very dissimilar for academics with children, those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds etc.
So much time&money is spent on outreach telling these groups academia is for them-only to be made not to work for them when they're there
The narrative of those with disabilities "seeking an unfair advantage" by insisting on the support they are not only legally entitled to, but that indeed creates a level playing field in the first place (and often not even that) absolutely needs to stop!
These people are already running 2x as fast (at least) to stay in the same place as those who have no need to run- constantly. If you're a senior academic, admin, funder etc making decisions- you can& must be the difference #highered #academia #disability #equity #discrimination
