Headstart presents...

Despite advances in diversity in recent years, those with disabilities are underrepresented - especially within early talent hiring roles. Talented and keen graduates are commonly discriminated against through unconscious bias and outdated beliefs that are steeped in stereotypes and misconceptions.

How can graduate employers remove these barriers to employment, create inclusive hiring practices, and do the right thing?

Join Headstart CEO Gareth Jones for a live panel on disability in early talent hiring as our special guests discuss:

Why organizations should embrace disabled candidates

What organizations must do to be more inclusive for disabled applicants and employees

How standard hiring experiences prevent disabled candidates from applying as their true selves.

How employers can promote and accomodate disabilities in the workplace
