013: Representation Matters - Isabelle Jani-Friend: Invisible Disability Discrimination in the Workforce

Isabelle Jani-friend is a freelance journalist and campaigner focusing on health and disability. Determined not to let her Cystic Fibrosis hold her back, Isabelle has used her disability to help build a career for herself and raise awareness about important issues such as equal access to healthcare and medication. She is also passionate about giving underrepresented groups a voice, and has written a number of articles on invisible illnesses and workplace discrimination which have been published across media outlets such as the Guardian, Independent and Lucuna Voices. In this episode of ‘Representation Matters’ Isabelle Jani-Friend discusses her experiences of living with an invisible disability, the challenges that people with protected characteristics face when it comes to entering the world of work, and what employers working with underrepresented individuals need to be more aware of.
