In March 2021, Realize will host the National Episodic Disabilities and Employment Summit. This event will take place entirely online over 3 days. Our goal is to raise awareness on episodic disability and employment, discuss best practices in accommodation for episodic disabilities, and develop a report on the outcomes. The event will highlight tools, research, and projects that are beneficial to both people living with episodic disabilities, and their employers.
We will take what we learn from these presentations and discussions to develop a National Action Plan on Episodic Disabilities.
This exciting event will take place over Zoom on March 23rd, 24th, and 26th from 1:00pm-3:30pm (ET) each day
Day 1 will focus on Employees and People with Lived Experience of Episodic Disability
Day 2 will focus on Employers and Accommodation Best Practices
Day 3 will include a report on COVID-19 from Employment and Social Development Canada and a facilitated discussion that will inform the development of a National Action Plan on Episodic Disabilities.
