Ruby Jones

An (In)Accessible Education, University of Exeter
United Kingdom

Ruby Jones is a disability activist, who has been working in Higher Education for 2 years. Her lived experience of disability comes from living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and this personal viewpoint formed the basis of her successful Sabbatical campaign #TheWheelDeal, where she was elected to represent the students of her university as their VP for Welfare and Diversity, despite the national lockdown in the middle of a pandemic. She has also successfully managed and run the social media platform and blog, @chr0nicallycute for five years, as well as running an Etsy shop, Chronically Cute, with her sister. Ruby has recently taken up a position with the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team at her alma mater, the University of Exeter, and looks forwards to making more meaningful change for her disabled colleagues and students alike.
