Learning Services hosts Inclusive Employer Recognition Event

November 08, 2019

In recognition of Disability Awareness Month, School District 43 (Coquitlam) Learning Services held an event to recognize and thank local businesses that have hosted School District 43 work experience placements for youth with diverse abilities. 

On Thursday October 17, we invited over 50 local businesses and other community organizations to join us in celebrating inclusive employment and diversity in the workplace.  This gathering was an opportunity to recognize their contribution to creating a diverse workforce, celebrate student success, learn more about the district work experience program, and network with community partners. 

We highlighted several student's testimonials and discovered how these experiences have helped them become more independent, learn new employment skills, and develop new relationships.
