Event description

Description

Canadian Business SenseAbility has partnered with local employment agencies in Chatham Kent to present the SenseAbility Forum. This forum is targeted for local employers to come learn from local inclusion champions, the real, proven advantages, for a business that employs people with disabilities. People with disabilities an under-utilized pool of talent, however many studies demonstrate that hiring people with disabilities has a positive impact on business growth and can give the business the competitive advantage it needs. Key Note speaker Lisa Kelly from Canadian Business SenseAbility will provide the business case of hiring people with disabilities, and present an online toolkit that is designed to provide employers with a “roadmap” that outlines the benefits of hiring those with disabilities, and the tools they need to start hiring the talent they are looking for.

Please join us February 22nd from 1:00pm-4:00pm at Blazin BBQ. A complimentary lunch will be served from 1:00pm-2:00pm with speeches beginning promptly at 2:00pm. Speeches will be finished by 3:30 with networking scheduled after!

This event is proudly presented to you by The Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent, Community Living Chatham-Kent, Community Living Wallaceburg, Insight Advantage Inc, The Goodwill Career Centre, Goodwill Industries-Essex, Kent, Lambton and Blazin BBQ Ribhouse.
