Le PAIRE appuie une reprise économique inclusive dans l’est de l’Ontario

Des employeurs locaux nous ont dit qu’ils voulaient savoir comment devenir plus inclusifs et accessibles dans leurs pratiques d’emploi. Nous avons donc collaboré avec nos partenaires communautaires et nos membres pour créer une série d’ateliers en quatre parties qui permet d’améliorer les compétences et de renforcer la confiance dans l’élaboration de pratiques de recrutement et de rétention accessibles en milieu de travail.

Nous sommes fiers de vous présenter cette série, intitulée « Shaping Accessible Employment Practices (en anglais seulement) ». Ces ateliers aideront les employeurs, les professionnels dans le domaine des ressources humaines, des gestionnaires ainsi que tous les employés à comprendre les éléments clés qui leur permettront d’accéder à ce bassin de talents inexploité.

How EARN is supporting an inclusive economic recovery in East Ontario

Local employers told us they wanted to know how to become more inclusive and accessible in their employment practices.

So, EARN worked with our community partners and members to create a four-part workshop series that improves skills and builds confidence in developing accessible recruitment and retention practices in the workplace.

EARN is proud to present this series, entitled "Shaping Accessible Employment Practices". These workshops will help employers, HR professions, managers and all employees understand the key elements that will allow them to access this untapped talent pool.

Shannon Bruce, manager, business development at the Employment Accessibility Resource Network, observes, “Highly talented people are being overlooked. Considering hiring people with disabilities is not about doing something that feels good, but about not missing out on the next best talent.” This is a problem both for your organization and for your potential staff.

Why is the nonprofit sector not doing a better job of hiring people with disabilities? We've got tips on how to improve in our new article: https://charityvillage.com/cms/content/topic/a_missed_opportunity_how_the_nonprofit_sector_can_better_hire_people_with_disabilities

Thank you for the opportunity to share how #Ottawa employers can create more inclusive job posting which will help them attract a more diverse and largely untapped talent pool. (...it also simplifies many stages of the employee life cycle for everyone!) #talent #diversity #inclusion

Reverse job fair connects people with disabilities to employers

What an interesting idea!!!!

"Unlike a traditional job fair, employers are the ones rotating the room, visiting with prospective hires."

Local officials within the business community say the employment rate for people with disabilities is low but thanks to a special program, interns are getting connected with career opportunities in the Chippewa Valley.

Buy your #earlybird tickets now!

At the 7th Annual EARN Conference we want to help employers recognize that their employees all have multiple social identities (i.e. Race, class, gender, ability) and these identities intersect on many levels and consider what systems are in place that provide opportunities for some, and create barriers for others. Employers will leave with strategies that can foster a more inclusion and support better communication and results in the workplace.
