Innovative Strategies for Job Placement Success – Virtual Information Session

February 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Innovative Strategies for Job Placement Success

Uniquely Abled Academy Candidates & The Hidden Staffing Options – Information Session

The focus of this presentation is to discuss the innovative strategies of hiring Uniquely Abled Academy candidates and discuss the myths and assumptions and hiring barriers that create barriers to talented and qualified individuals who are Neurodivergent. 

Because the words we use shape the way we think, when looking through the lens of the word “disabled,” we tend to think about what’s missing in a person. As a result, we often miss seeing the unique capabilities these people offer. The goal of The Uniquely Abled Project is to shift the paradigm of thinking from “disabled” to “uniquely abled”.

This one hour virtual information session is part 2 of this event and is a time for Manufacturers to learn more about the Uniquely Abled Project as an addition to their current workforce. We are hearing everyday that Manufacturers are still dealing with workforce shifts so MassMEP is partnering with the Uniquely Abled Project at Bridgewater State University to showcase this opportunity. The goal is to demystify a large population of untapped talent that is loyal, eager to learn and point specific.

If you are still looking at a more diverse way to integrate your workforce this information session will provide key points on how to do that.
