This series of webinars is supported by Down Syndrome International and the International Disability Alliance.

We have recruited 5 self-advocates with intellectual disabilities to work with us to develop webinars on the barriers faced and the best practices related to the inclusive employment of persons with intellectual disabilities.

The self-advocates will lead the delivery of the webinars.
