This panel discussion will bring together a group of employers who have been actively involved in finding positions for persons with disabilities during these (and other) challenging economic times.
We will discuss topics like:
- The value of continuing to hire persons with disabilities in tough economic times.
- What are employers doing in this downturn?
- Do service providers have to approach things differently in this climate?
We will also discuss how (especially in a city like Calgary, which is one of the hardest hit) this affected persons with disabilities in the workforce…And is it true that they are often the last in and first out?
