About this event

We are delighted to be joined by Hannah Kelly, GetAHEAD Coordinator with AHEAD who will speak about how people with a disabiling disorder such as migraine can plan for their careers, employment with assistance from AHEAD.

Hannah will speak about the GetAhead and WAM programmes - GetAHEAD is a network of student and graduates with disabilities currently making the transition from third-level education to full time employment.

Topics include

  • navigating employment with a disability
  • disclosing a disability at work
  • reasonable accommodations
  • legislation in place around disability in the workplace

GetAHEAD works to up-skill graduates with disabilities by providing training events and valuable information covering a wide range of topics and resources

Willing Able Mentoring (WAM) is a work placement programme which aims to promote access to the labour market for graduates with disabilities and build the capacity of employers to integrate disability into the mainstream workplace.

Chronic migraineurs spend on average 19 hours per month in darkness or isolation.
