What makes “Breaking it Down” different from other employment workshops?

Unlike most employment workshops that rely on a one-way flow of knowledge from employer to potential employee, student and employer participants will have the opportunity to engage in facilitated discussions aimed at creating a knowledge exchange process between employers and potential employees.

The Breaking It Down workshop is part of “Breaking Through Barriers”: An Employment Project To Support Persons With Disabilities, a national two–and-a-half year project funded by Labour Canada through its Workplace Opportunities: Removing Barriers to Equity program. The initiative is aimed at connecting recent graduates with disabilities and employers in the federally regulated sector, through in-person workshops and a unique web portal designed to create on-going relationships and resource sharing between disabled graduates and employers.
