Event Details
Online Webinar

Australians with disability face a number of barriers with regard to labour market participation, compared to those without disability, and are one of the most disadvantaged equity groups.

In this panel discussion, career practitioners will hear from experts in disability, inclusion, advocacy and employability, who will discuss the range of visible and hidden barriers jobseekers with disability face, provide practical insights into strategies for career practitioners, and highlight best practice examples of programs and supports available.
