Atif is a co-founder and CEO of Diversity and Ability (D&A) and Zaytoun CiC (the world’s first Fairtrade Palestinian olive oil cooperative. His lecture celebrates the strength of inclusion through intersectional lenses as he welcomes the diversity of thought and the hidden assets in everyone.
Cheri Shone (ADSHE)
has a long history of involvement with ADSHE. As a student, she enjoyed the support of Sandra Hargreaves (an active early member of ADSHE); then Cheri joined ADSHE herself shortly after becoming a specialist support tutor. She has been inspired and enthused with the willingness of the members to interrogate and improve their own practice. This has helped to inform and develop her practice over the years. Her lecture celebrates the resilience of tutors and students.
