Access Statement: Belfast Workplace Conference 2024

At Stonewall, we believe that all attendees should be able to fully participate in our events and feel comfortable doing so. 

We are taking measures and efforts to ensure that we organise events that are accessible to all. We commit to ensuring that as far as possible we work with you to accommodate any adjustments that you require. We will take feedback on access issues seriously and work to ensure that we improve and develop after every event.
