Description

It’s proven! Hiring people with disabilities is not just good for the community, it's great for business!

At a time when a predicted labour shortage is already having an impact, and the need for a reliable and efficient workplace is more salient, the INCLUSION MAKES CENT$ Symposium brings local business owners, hiring managers and job seekers with a disability together to be enlightened, to be educated, and to engage with the concurrent reality that creating an inclusive workforce is a viable and profitable solution.

FOR BUSINESS OWNERS and HR PROFESSIONALS, this event offers an opportunity to find out how to attract this untapped pool of talent at minimal (if any) cost. Get your questions answered by experts.
