Webinar: Filling the skills gap in the public sector: talent with disabilities

The public sector is facing rapid changes – from shifts in the organization of work to new technologies making their way into public entities. Targeted initiatives by public employers can create and maintain a pipeline of persons with disabilities who develop new and improve existing skills to make the public sector work for all. Employment of persons with disabilities in the public service not only changes their place in society, the way society perceives persons with disabilities but also the ways people interact with the public sector. Speakers were Yazmine Laroche, Deputy Minister, Public Service Accessibility, Government of Canada; Victor Calise, Commissioner, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, New York City; Martha Jackson, Assistant Commissioner Employment and Business Relations, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, New York City.
