Event Details

With nearly 50% of people with disability (of working age) not in the labour force, Australian businesses have the opportunity of tapping into a large skilled talent pool.

 

The benefits of hiring people with disability are clear, bringing a different range of skills, abilities and perspectives; fostering a productive, diverse and inclusive workplace.

 

This seminar aims to bring employers and graduates with disability together to:

* Get the facts: Learn about the strong business case for a diverse and inclusive workplace, offering low risk and high return

* Get the support: Tap into the wide range of free and expert support services provided by the Australian Government

* Get advice: Gain insights from employers and employees who have embraced and benefited from diversity

 
This interactive session will include presentations, panel disussions and opportunities for networking.
 
You will also learn more about how to get involved in AccessAbility Day, an Australian Government initiative that connects employers and jobseekers with disability to explore new possibilities in the workplace for one day.
