Viki is Chair of DAWN, managing the Network along with her fabulous committee. As Chair she has been working with the school to embed disability inclusion into policies, procedures and practices, she chairs and organises committee meetings and is dedicated to creating a space for LSE’s Disabled staff community to come together to share experiences, offer mutual support, gain practical information, and enjoy social get-togethers in a safe and accessible environment.
Viki works in LSE Careers as a Careers Consultant and, alongside working with students across the school, specialises and leads on supporting Disabled students with their career issues. Viki has specialised in the field of Disability and Employment since 2005 and is passionate about creating equal opportunities for all and removing barriers faced by Disabled people.
Outside of work Viki is a proud scouser (without an accent though!) whose only complaint about Liverpool is that it doesn’t get half the sun that London does. She is a firm fan of Netflix (there’s ALWAYS something to watch) and has recently started revisiting the cinema after a long Covid induced break. Half sloth half whirlwind - if you ever see Viki on campus she will probably be rushing somewhere but her preferred state of being is ‘relax’ which is something she intends to do….sometime…
Viki would love to welcome new joiners to DAWN so if you are Disabled or have an interest in Disability issues, or support Disabled loved ones please do join. We would love to have you!
