What is DMD?
Mission: Disabilities Mentoring Day bridges the communication and knowledge gaps between business, employment and community support organizations, and persons with disabilities.
The goals of Disabilities Mentoring Day are:
- To address and debunk the myths that many employers have regarding the skills, talents and capabilities of job and training ready persons with disabilities,
- To enhance internship, co-operative education and employment opportunities for persons with disabilities,
- To increase confidence among students and jobseekers with disabilities, and
- To give employers an opportunity to benchmark themselves as being accessible to what is a largely untapped pool of talent as well as a massive consumer market.
When is this day held?
Disabilities Mentoring Day will be held on October 26, 2016. The day is always held on the last Wednesday of October.
This year we will be hosting events in Waterloo Region, London, Brantford, Hamilton, Kingston, Toronto, Halifax, Boston, Hong Kong, France & UK.
