Key Findings

No disability journey is the same, but we can always learn from other people’s stories.

The Perspective Series on Youth Employment is part of a series of virtual panels for ConnecTra Society’s online programming platform, ConnecTogether. In this session, Shoko Kitano from Canadian National Institude for the Blind, Louise M. Gaudry from Richmond Center for Disability and Maeghan Taverner share their lived experiences and provide a holistic view of employment from different perspectives: employer, disability organization, and young professional.
