The Institute for Work & Health is inviting you to share your ideas and experiences as part of a new study that is exploring the future of work for young people with disabilities.
Your insights will be used to support the employment of young people with disabilities.
What is the study about?
The world of work is changing very quickly. Factors like technology, artificial intelligence and climate change are changing how we work and creating new challenges and opportunities for young people seeking jobs who are living with a disability. Your help is needed to understand how to support young people with disabilities in the future of work.
Your opinions matter.
Design creative ideas to make the future of work inclusive.
If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete two online activities, spaced six months apart, where you will be asked to recommend supports for the future for young people with disabilities. You can also choose to complete the activity by telephone.
You will receive a $25 Amazon e-gift card for each online activity you complete.
