What is Disabilities Mentoring Day?

Mission: Dolphin Disabilities Mentoring Day utilizes technology to help bridge the talent, communication and knowledge gaps between business, employment and community supports, and persons with disabilities

Goals for Disabilities Mentoring Day:

  • To provide mentees access to workplace contacts, environments, skills, & HR process,
  • To increase confidence among students and jobseekers with disabilities,
  • To enhance internship, co-operative education and employment opportunities for persons with disabilities,
  • To dispel employers’ fears about hiring people with disabilities and promote disability confidence,
  • To give employers an opportunity to benchmark themselves as being accessible to what is a largely untapped pool of talent as well as a massive consumer market.
