Disability Awareness


People with disabilities represent a significant and largely underutilized resource for business. Many disabled persons are underemployed or unemployed. As a result of advocates for diversity, as well as a shrinking labour pool, employers are taking a serious look at hiring and retaining people with disabilities. This one-day workshop will give supervisors, managers and human resource consultants’ tools and tips for creating a diverse workplace.
