This four-part learning series is designed to enhance skills and build confidence in shaping accessible recruitment and job retention practices. Given that persons with disabilities are disproportionately underrepresented in the labour market, these workshops will help employers understand the key elements in order to access this untapped talent pool. Participants will also understand how to develop long term strategies towards increasing participation of persons with disabilities in the workplace. This four-part learning series can be taken as individual workshops.
This Employment Ontario Project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
