SBC presents; Diversify Your Workplace

February 1, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


WEareABLE is a new program-initiative in Windsor-Essex aimed to educate local business owners and hiring managers about the facts, myths, and numerous benefits of hiring individuals with disabilities. By eliminating the barriers and stereotypes, we can create a positive pathway towards these individuals gaining competitive employment within our community.

By attending this free information session, you will get to know the facts and statistics about employment for the disable, as well as get testimonials of employers who have been successful in hiring these individuals. The speakers present real life experiences and obstacles they have experienced while trying to find employment, and they explain the process of hiring someone and the various agencies who can assist your business with finding and training individuals looking for employment.

WEareABLE can assist your business with many disability employment and hiring questions. Join us on Wednesday, February 1, at 9am, for a FREE 40-minute discussion on the benefits of becoming an inclusive employer.
