According to the World Health Organization, “disability” is an umbrella term that covers various physical, medical and mental impairments that may limit one’s ability to participate in daily activities.

Given this classification, there are more than one billion people around the globe who have some form of disability, with 78% acquiring their disability while of working age. This makes it critical for organizations to prepare for the reality that many of their employees are – or will become – disabled.

Tune in to season 4, episode 2 of Diversonomics as hosts Roberto Aburto and Cindy Kou chat with diversity and inclusion consultant Emma Dennis about the challenges of developing an inclusiveness strategy for disabled employees in a world where there is no “one size fits all” solution.

The restoration of friendly relations – that is how many people would define the term “reconciliation.” However, when it comes to reconciliation in the context of Indigenous people and the legal landscape in Canada, the above-mentioned definition may not exactly apply. Canada’s history with Indigenous people and their rights is a long one fraught with discrimination and racism, which some would say is still is embedded in many aspects of our Federal legislation today.

Tune into the first episode of Diversonomics, Season 4, as our hosts Roberto Aburto and Cindy Kou chat with one of Canada’s top 25 most influential lawyers of 2019, Jaimie Lickers, about what reconciliation really means for Indigenous people in Canada and how to move the legal profession forward when it comes to Indigenous law.
