The Employment Accessibility Resource Network (EARN) invites you to attend our 7th Annual Conference on Friday June 7th, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre
EARN is a United Way led, community initiative that brings together in partnership employers, service providers and other stakeholders with the goal of increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities and promoting inclusive and accessible workplaces.
Recognizing that we all have multiple social identities (i.e. Race, class, gender, ability) and these identities intersect on many levels, we want to help you consider what systems are in place in your workplace that provide opportunities for some, and create barriers for others. The presenters and activities will help you build a greater awareness of the ways in which privilege operates, so you will be able to understand how greater equity can be created. You will also be provided tools to support putting these ideas into action.
The objective of this year’s conference is to provide strategies and resources for employers to create a more inclusive workplace experience. This will ensure that you are equipped to attract and retain the best employees.
Registration will begin at 8:00am with an opportunity to network until programming begins promptly at 9:00am. The conference will end at 3:00pm, a continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
