We hosted another Employment Workshop on Wednesday, 18 October 2023. Speakers included Rustim Ariefdien who spoke about the B-BBEE benefits of leanerships, Len Davey who discussed human needs and its impact on the workplace, and Lesa Bradshaw who discussed need to shift the narrative around inclusion from “special” to “equal”.
These workshops offer an opportunity to QASA to educate employers on the benefits of employing people with disabilities, advise them on how to go about accommodating people with disabilities in the workplace, and network with businesses who are serious about employing people with disabilities to secure work placement opportunities for the QASA Work Readiness Programme candidates.
Below is part of the webinar. The presentation by Lesa Bradshaw was removed for intellectual property reasons.
