By
Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER)

In partnership with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) is hosting a series of roundtable events with HR and Talent leaders from across Canada.

Our goal is to better understand what employers need to effectively recruit, hire, and support employees with disabilities and to help develop the Employment Standards, tools, and resources that will get them there.

This virtual forum is also an opportunity for employers and practitioners to network and exchange best practices to address shared challenges.  

Roundtables are 60 minutes in length, and all participants will be offered a $100 honorarium (optional) as a token of appreciation.

Please note, the purpose of this form is to indicate your interest in participating in a roundtable event. We will follow up with interested participants to schedule event sessions.

If you have any questions, or would like to get in touch with us directly, please email the Project Lead:
