Making the future of work more inclusive for young adults with disabilities

Diverse young adults in a work setting with words: "Help design strategies for a more inclusive future of work"
Date posted

The world of work is changing very quickly. Factors like technology, artificial intelligence and climate change are changing how we work and creating new challenges and opportunities for young people seeking jobs who are living with a disability.

Your help is needed to understand how young people with disabilities can be supported in the future of work.

Our colleagues at the Institute for Work & Health are looking for young people with lived experience with disability (18-35) and key informants (e.g., policymakers, disability employment service providers, employers, and labour market experts) to help design future of work supports for young people with disabilities.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete two online activities, spaced six months apart, where you will be asked to recommend supports for the future for young people with disabilities. You can also choose to complete the activity by telephone. Young people with disabilities who participate will receive a $25 Amazon e-gift card for each online activity you complete.
