THE EMPLOYMENT LEARNING SERIES
This session is part of an ongoing series of learning webcasts for employment of persons with disabilities. The government is focused on ensuring Albertans with disabilities have access to and are supported in meaningful job opportunities that contribute to a rich and fulfilling life.
These webcasts provide a forum for open dialogue to discuss issues around employment for individuals with disabilities. These sessions are intended to spark the collective imagination of individuals, families, agencies and employers on how we can all work collaboratively to create inclusive workplaces and communities.
