People with FASD have many strengths, skills, and abilities to bring to their workplace. However, there are a number of challenges and barriers to people with FASD entering and succeeding in the workforce.
In this webinar, we bring together a researcher, a person with FASD, and an FASD service provider to talk about how we can optimize employment opportunities and outcomes to encourage success for those with FASD in the workplace. Our amazing speakers include Dr. Aamena Kapasi, a research fellow with CanFASD; Lisa Murphy, the Executive Director of the Lakeland Centre for FASD; and Blair Charters, a FASD advocate successfully working in Alberta for the last 22 years.
The Canada Northwest FASD Partnership is sponsoring this event as employment is one of their strategic priorities.
