CCDI Webinar: How to be a disability advocate

One in five Canadians lives with a disability (based on the Canadian Government’s definition of disability). This is largely due to an aging workforce, and a much deeper understanding of just what a disability is. Yes, unemployment and underemployment rates for people with disabilities – particularly people with visible disabilities – is significantly higher than the able-bodied population.

Join us as we explore the topic of disability in the workplace, and examine what individuals need to understand about disability, and how they can be advocates for change around disability inclusion.

Who should attend:

  • General public: These webinars are targeted toward a general audience who have little to no information on the topic. These webinars will answer the question “what is?” and provide participants with information on creating an inclusive workplace.
