How accessible is your workplace? How can you better support employees living with visible and non-visible disabilities? How can you become a self-advocate and land a Green Job?

This workshop will focus on accessibility in the forest sector.

Youth & Employers

Youth will learn how to become a self-advocate and pitch themselves to land a Green Job. We will also discuss available opportunities in the forest sector. 

Employers will learn more about visible and non-visible disabilities and how best to support your staff. We will also talk about the benefits of an accessibility audit and investing in diversity.
