Employment TaskforceShare via facebook Share via twitter Share via linkedin Share via email
The Employment Taskforce brings together Business Disability Forum members and partners to discuss the key issues in relation to the attraction, recruitment and retention of disabled people. The Taskforce has focused on a number of employment-related issues in the last 18 months including;
- Access to Work
- Inclusive recruitment practises
- Workplace adjustments
- Disability passports or adjustment plans
Our next taskforce event will be held as a remote meeting on Wednesday 28 April from 10:00am to 11:30am.
At this meeting, we will hear from Fara Muneer and Maddy Rees from Centre for Accessible Environments about their CAE Pathways Academy in which they are training and mentoring 15 young disabled people into careers in inclusive design and related careers, e.g., working within an organisation on their D&I strategy.
The meeting will operate as a closed meeting with a view to creating a safe space where people can share some of the challenges they face and the solutions being considered and implemented to overcome these.
