Disability Awareness Training with atWork Australia

We know inclusive employment is good for business, it helps build an accessible and inclusive workplace and promotes a diverse workforce. People living with disability have many contributions to make to workplaces and the wider community, but their capacity to do so can be limited by the perceptions or actions of others.

atWork Australia is pleased to run free Disability Awareness Training to enhance awareness and knowledge of disability and inclusion in the workplace.

Our Disability Awareness Training empowers employers to build more diverse teams and confidently supports employees living with disability. It provides workplaces with practical tools and strategies to gain a deeper understanding of how to attract, recruit and support a diverse workforce.
