October is Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM) in Alberta to:

  • celebrate workers with disabilities  and their skills, successes and achievements in the work place
  • promote employment inclusion for people with varying abilities
  • raise public awareness about disability employment issues and the role we all play in fostering a disability-friendly work culture
  • support employers in promoting inclusive hiring practices and demonstrating their ongoing commitment to Albertans with disabilities

We attended the DEAM Kick Off event on October 1st at the Alberta Legislature. Here are some photos:
