    Work BC Advisory Committee

    Similar to our Rural & Remote Action Committee, we will be convening Work BC contractors to discuss the current contracts to identify what is working, what needs improvement, and what we would like to see for future contracts. Some meetings will be for prime contractors and some meetings will be for subcontractors. 

    ASPECT will serve as an administrator to these meetings, but the content will be wholly member-driven to inform and support advocacy to funders.

    We will host a series of meetings between May and October. Our first meeting will take place on May 4 and then we will continue meeting on the 4th Wednesday of every month from 1:00 - 2:30. Each month will focus on a different topic which will be identified in the first meeting. To participate, please sign up for the session that most interests you and for which you have something to contribute.

    Goals

    • Proactively discuss and identify what is working with the current Work BC contract as well as what needs improvement.
    • Focus on problem solving and collaboration with the funders.
    • Create content for a white paper to inform government for future contracts and to present at the ASPECT Conference

    New Tool to Help Employers Gauge Disability Inclusion


    Co-created by Open Door Group and Presidents Group, the Disability Inclusive Employer Self-Assessment is a new free tool to help Canadian employers become more disability inclusive. The Disability Inclusive Employer Self-Assessment helps organizations assess their current disability inclusion practices and provides a 20-page report of tangible actions and resources employers can use to improve their performance.

    The self-assessment takes about 15 minutes to complete and covers leading practices in a dozen categories including Mental Health, Disability Representation, Employee Benefits, Recruitment and Digital Accessibility.

    In this 1 hour webinar, Open Door Group’s CEO, Alona Puehse, and the project team will offer you a tour of the tool, a summary of the evidence-based practices that underpin the assessment and early feedback from employers.

    Event accessibility: Live captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided. If you have other access needs, you will be invited to share them during registration.

    Who should attend?

    Everyone! Open Door Group’s goal is to have 250 employers complete the assessment by year end and is inviting the service provider community to consider the tool for their own internal use as inclusive employers, and as a tool for staff who working with employers across BC.
