Workshop 3: How disability employment can bridge Australia’s skills and innovation gap.

10:35 am

Employing people with disability means accessing a talent pool that is productive, safe and reliable. In turn, drawing long-term economic and innovation dividends for businesses.

Yet, people with disability are twice as likely to be unemployed as those without disability. How can Australian workplaces unlock this untapped potential to bridge the gap?

The session will highlight:

  • The business case for a diverse and inclusive workplace, offering low risk, improved productivity, and high return
  • Practical strategies to build disability confidence and develop inclusive practices
  • The range of free and expert disability employment supports provided by the Australian Government through JobAccess
