Petria McGoldrickPartnerships – in working together, supporting each other, always learning & celebrating success. 
It’s been fifteen years since Petria McGoldrick commenced her role as a Disability Liaison Officer at the University of Wollongong. Though it’s been a while, she can still recall her role prior to this one; she was working in occupational rehab, based in the workers’ compensation area, and also assisting people from the community with disability to fulfil their work and education goals. Clearly, disability assistance is an area she has long been passionate about.  Read more about Petria McGoldrick

Today is International Day of People with Disability. This year, the theme for the day is 'Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality'. Each day in our line of work, we seek to make situations and occasions more inclusive and equitable for students in a tertiary setting. However, there is always more to do. We hope that this theme will help to identify how we can work better to empower students with disability. For more information about the day, go to #IDPWD
