MentorAbility Canada - National Webinar Series

Join MentorAbility Canada as we embark on a series of conversations about inclusion.  With over 6.2 million Canadian citizens experiencing a disability, we collectively benefit from engaging the strengths and talents of this largely untapped labour pool.  Beyond this, we have the opportunity to create responsive tools and strategies to support employers in mobilizing this resource.  Join Canada’s thought leaders as we explore inclusive policies and practices, workplace culture, the power of authentic work-based relationships and the real work involved in changing our world. 

A special thanks to People First of Canada for translating our information to plain language.  Plain language helps to increase accessibility and participation for greater involvement by all.
