Career Guide for College Students with Disabilities

 

Accessible Employers

Finding a career after graduating college can be a daunting prospect for many students, but it can be especially challenging for students with disabilities. These students face challenges associated with a lack of career counseling, discriminatory hiring practices, a fear of disclosing disabilities during the application or interviewing process for a job, and inadequate education regarding disability rights.

Hiring individuals with disabilities is good for business. BC businesses of all sizes – small and large – are challenged finding and keeping good employees. People with disabilities represent an important employee talent pool that is largely untapped. We invite you to join the Community of Accessible Employers to learn about the benefits of an accessible, inclusive workplace.

In 2013, the BC Government supported a Presidents Group – a network of change-driven BC business leaders who are champions for more accessible, inclusive workplaces. The group represents businesses of all different sizes and sectors.

In 2018, the Presidents Group launched the Community of Accessible Employers to invite employers and business owners around the province to join the inclusive employment movement. Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions to learn why and how you can join this growing community.

A Guide to Supporting STEM Education for Students With Disabilities

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Fields that fall into the STEM category typically account for a wide swath of professions that offer excellent pay and prestige, as well as an opportunity to impact significant societal innovations. STEM professions are also increasingly sought after for their job security, due to sweeping technological upgrades such as automation rendering many labor and service jobs obsolete, while increasing demand for technology professionals.

Given the security and positive attention associated with these professions, this workforce shift is an opportunity to promote egalitarianism through diverse representation in STEM fields. However, unfortunately, many factors have limited access to these fields for many demographics, including people with disabilities. However, with support and cultivation of interest from a young age, people with disabilities may be able to benefit from a more fair footing in terms of pursuing a STEM career.
