Disability Inclusion: Opportunities, not Obstacles

Learn what employers’ responsibilities are to accommodate disabilities and practical strategies for breaking down barriers.


Representatives with lived experience with a variety of disabilities will come together to share their personal experiences of stigma, discrimination and misconceptions in the workplace. Through the moderated discussion, people attending the session will learn about what employers’ responsibilities are to accommodate disabilities in their workplaces. They will leave the session with ideas for policies and practices they can implement to make the culture in their organizations more welcoming and open to people who often face obstacles or barriers to employment that can usually be quite easily accommodated.
The panel will be moderated by Robin East (Chair of the Board for Barrier Free Saskatchewan), and will include panelists with lived experience with a variety of visible and invisible disabilities.
The Community Engagement and Research Centre, together with the University of Regina’s President’s Office, and the South Saskatchewan Community are pleased to present this workshop and others meant to help improve organizational culture and better serve diverse community members.
