This seminar considered how equality law can be framed to reflect the increased focus on diversity alongside equality. How can the law shift from its predominant focus on treating everyone the same to an approach which also respects the need for different treatment at times and how do the concepts of ‘reasonable adjustment’ and indirect discrimination fit here?
Speakers at the seminar were Canadian lawyer and disability specialist Patricia Bregman and Robin Allen QC.
The EDF would like to thank Simmons and Simmons for providing the venue for the seminar.
