Disability employment pathways Thursday, 3rd December 2015
Council is actively involved in improving the quality of life of people with a disability via the Building Inclusive Communities program (Metro Access).
In response to the Boroondara Disability Summit held in July 2015, Council will be hosting an event for people with disability who are job seekers and/or looking to transition into employment. The four-hour event will:
Bring together the key contacts and agencies that empower people with disability to seek meaningful employment.
Focus on the identification of employment transition programs, local initiatives and career counselling pathways and for participants to network and discuss their individual needs and aspirations.
Provide opportunity to meet ‘job stars’ those people with a disability who currently have completed transition to employment programs.
Uncover what Council and local services are doing in championing the business case for employing people with a disability.
Students, Carers, disability organisations and businesses are also warmly invited.
The $5 note still goes a long way today, with only five of them ($25) needed to restore sight in some countries. But strangely enough, the $5 note is the only Australian bank note which doesn't recognise a great Australian. So we think it’s time to “Put Fred on the Fiver”. But we need your help: will you sign our petition below and make it happen?
We want to replace the image of Parliament House with an image of Fred. Yes, Parliament House is an important building, but isn't it time for a worthy Australian to have pride of place?
