DEAM 2018 Highlights

The CEFN is proud to celebrate Disability Employment Awareness Month every October.  It is important to us to recognize and celebrate the outstanding inclusive employers and diverse employees that we work with.  Our DEAM 2018 events wouldn’t have been possible without our fantastic community partners.  We’d like to thank the following DEAM 2018 partners for their commitment to inclusive workplaces: Pan Disability Connection, The City of Calgary, Mount Royal University, Bow Valley College, CPHR Alberta, and Prairie Dog Brewing.
