As part of FRPO's ongoing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series, we are pleased to partner with Holland Bloorview for an educational webinar on December 6th. Join us to learn about creating a more inclusive world for people with disabilities, by keeping inclusion at the forefront of all aspects of your business. Did you know 22% of Canadians identify as having a disability? Sound like a small percentage? It’s not. That’s 6.2 million people. But we don’t see them — not how we should — and it’s time to fix that.
One bias we’re trying to dissolve? The lack of representation and inclusion – in advertising, in the media and in the workforce. So we’re asking for help. It’s time to make our world more inclusive. And you are a big part of that help.
Attend this complimentary webinar to learn the best practices of disability inclusion in all your work. Holland Bloorview’s anti-stigma campaign, The Dear Everybody Agreement, is creating a shift in our corporate world to include disability in the picture. Learn about authentic inclusion and representation of folks with disabilities in your work by learning about proper language to use with disability, tips, and tricks on being an ally, and how we can be an ongoing resource to your team moving forward. You can learn more about the Dear Everybody Agreement here
