Stuttering Employer Awareness: Brisbane City Council

Thank you Brisbane City Council for the opportunity to educate your recruitment team about stuttering.  

  • Brisbane City Council is one of the largest local governments in the Asia Pacific region with over 8000 employees.
  • Delivered an information session where I shared my lived experiences with stuttering with the recruitment team as well as discussed the best way for them to support people who stutter (and overall communication differences) during the interview process.
  • Took part in a video interview and provided feedback on how to make the process more suitable to people who stutter; for example adjusting the allocated time per question so that disfluencies in speech are not disadvantaged in the video interview.
  • Provided a virtual screening of the documentary film When I Stutter which shares the lives of 19 people who stutter over the course of 4.5 years and how it has impacted their lives.
