About the Workshop: In today’s dynamic and globally-competitive business environment, there is an increasing need for business, both large and small, to be on the cutting edge of innovative practices, operations and customer engagement. One of the key differences between success and failure lies in the talent and diverse skill set of your workforce. Even more and more businesses begin to realize, and embrace the economic benefits of being inclusive, there are still myths and misperception about what inclusion truly means to business and how it contributes to business bottom line. At this event, you will:

  • Learn “Why an Inclusive Workforce is NOW best for business, and How to become one!
  • N – Need for employees
  • O – Opportunities are here/unmet
  • W– Where will you find staff/What more can you do to innovate/Welcome to your future workforce
  • Ask real-business questions to a panel of inclusive employers and local business support partners.
  • Link to business support resources around inclusive hiring

This event will also feature prominent and influential business leaders in British Columbia who champion, advice, learning and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. They will share their perspectives on recruiting, hiring and retaining people with disabilities within their own organizations and why it makes good business sense in becoming inclusive.
