Inclusive Recruitment Event for students with disabilities

This Fair Opportunity Inclusive Recruitment Event is our second event of its kind. We held our first event in March 2013, with 10 Participating Companies and over 40 students. In 2014 we are looking to extend our reach and increase our impact, providing a platform for more employers to position themselves as an employer of choice for disabled talent and attracting more students with disabilities to attend.

Feedback and Impact:

"Open to You, was a great platform for us to be able to profile ourselves as employers who are looking for applicants with disabilities... it’s able to connect employers interested in hiring people with disabilities along with students with disabilities who are interested in finding work…I think for any company who’s thinking about employing people with disabilities, this is a great first step to learn more and to become involved. The good thing is there’s no commitment…we’re not saying that you must hire 3 people at the end of this event. So you go out there, you experiment, you learn."

"Due to my disability, I was very worried about my future. I have been trying to look for a job and sent many application letters but I never heard back from anyone. .. I feel very lucky to have an opportunity to join Open to You Inclusive Recruitment event.. The event is very meaningful and it is really an unforgettable experience. Through this event, I met with many managers and express myself to them...Finally I got this offer and I have an internship in a bank."
