A Hire Awareness is a 16-minute video about the long-term contribution that persons with disabilities make to the workplace in Canada. It is a tool to help launch Canada’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) campaign. The video is designed to inspire CEOs and decision makers to open their eyes to the value of a largely overlooked labour force—persons with visible and invisible disabilities—who can be the solution to their employment challenges.
Read more about our Success Stories LizMars Productions created the film A HIRE AWARENESS to inspire employers to hire persons with disabilities, and to illustrate the business case. The film debunks the negative myths of hiring persons with a disability by focusing on real employee success stories within Canadian companies. It will also be used to build awareness of, and to fundraise for, NDEAM’s ambitious goals. Employers who attend the nationwide film screenings of A HIRE AWARENESS will be invited to get involved!
