Call Out: Expressions of Interest

The Alliance is looking for representatives from the DES industry across Australia, especially those who have has some experience engaging with people with disability from the LGBTI community.

 

Project Overview

The National LGBTI Health Alliance is undertaking a project funded through NDIS via the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Economic Community Participation Disability Grant. The aim of this project is to produce resources for employers within the LGBTI+ sector to promote the hiring of LGBTI+ people with disability. The purpose of this consultation is to seek insight from Disability Employment Services around how we can help to increase employment in the LGBTI space. The consultation will involve a discussion around the current barriers to employment as well as the potential solutions that LGBTI employers could provide to increase inclusion and employment opportunities. The project team will use the information gathered from this consultation to create an Employer Toolkit to assist LGBTI organisations in employing people with disability.
