Event description

Description

Securing a future for young people with disabilities in the workforce

Presented by Professor Judy Drennan, Dr Amanda Beatson & Dr Lisa Stafford

Australia experiences one of the highest unemployment rates of people with disability in the OECD. Improving workforce participation of this group is crucial in helping to improve both the economic security and the personal wellbeing of Australians living with a disability.

In this Business Breakfast, we discuss the motivations, abilities, needs and expectations of young people with physical disabilities regarding workforce participation and the role that employers can play in facilitating work opportunities for this group.

To explore this idea, the speakers will present the latest research from Australian and international studies of factors influencing the transition to work for young people with physical conditions. They will identify how to use these insights to improve employee engagement, facilitate change, and build a more inclusive workplace.
