About the Event

Remote working: challenges and opportunities for inclusive practice

How long do unprecedented times last before they become precedented? With the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, 2020 was the first experience of remote working for many, with teams and whole institutions suddenly in a new situation, finding new ways of working. Over a year later, the situation is no longer new. What has remote working taught us about inclusion? As debate emerges over calls to return to the office, this session reflects on the challenges and opportunities remote working has presented for accessible working and more inclusive practice in the workplace, considering issues of childcare, caring responsibilities, the digital divide and disability. Drawing on our own experiences at the University of York, we'll consider what lessons can be learned about remote working and how these can be used to create a more supportive and inclusive work environment, whether remote or in person.
