Length:

Recommended 3 hours. Minimum 2.5 hours.

Description:

Based on our experience of working with companies in the Asia region, we know that many companies are hesitant about how to approach the subject of disability in their organisations.  One of the biggest challenges is changing mindsets and bringing corporate executives into direct contact with professionals with disabilities and the specific issues they face. Community Business’ Building Disability Confidence FACE Workshop seeks to do just this – by having real individuals with disabilities present their real workplace issues.  In this highly interactivesession, participants have the opportunity to hear the personal stories of professionals with disabilities, understand their workplace issues and work together to come up with approaches to address.

Public Session

From time to time Community Business runs public sessions. The next public Disability FACEs session will be updated soon.
