A learning series on disability
inclusion at work

Our business-education-employment partnership created this learning series to build capacity for disability inclusion at work. Talent with disabilities can be your organization’s competitive edge. Hone in on specific skills or work through all courses for in-depth knowledge. An engaging mix of media drives learning and action in three key ways.

  • Bite-sized, self-guided learning with story-telling videos to “make it real” for learners.
  • A training toolkit to tailor group sessions for your staff, managers, leaders or business clients.
  • A repository of tools to take action on disability inclusion and “make it real” for your business.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
