Event description

Description

Diversity in the workplace refers to the variety of differences between people in an organisation. The inclusion of people with disabilities in the workforce remains a constant challenge. Intreo, the employment and income supports service from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, is hosting a breakfast seminar on Tuesday 23 October 2018 at the Kingsley Hotel, Cork, to discuss how employers can address this matter. You will find information on the wide range of financial and other supports available and how to access a labour force of untapped potential.

The keynote speaker will be paralympian John Twomey who has competed in 11 Paralympic Games winning gold and bronze in the discus. He also competed in sailing over five previous paralympics from Sydney in 2000 to Brazil in 2016.John will give an insight into his sporting career while at the same time explaining how he established and managed a successful accountancy business.

This will be followed by a panel discussion with contributions from employers who will give practical examples of the benefits of an inclusive workplace culture. There will also be information on the range of financial supports available from the Department to facilitate greater diversity in the workplace. Registration for this seminar will commence at 7:15am. Refreshments will be served on arrival giving you an opportunity to network with fellow attendees. Official proceedings will commence at 8:00am and finish at 9:45am. We look forward to seeing you on the day.
