This Inclusivity Employment Toolkit drawn up by the Open Doors Initiative is aimed at assisting companies working with our three groups – people with disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. It was created by O’ Herlihy Access with input from the UNHCR and Irish Youth Foundation.
Hopefully, it will assist you in your work with these groups and answer some questions you may have.
It is the first of future aids to help you in your work, particularly in terms of employing and working with people from marginalised groups and offering ways of meeting challenges and creating a better working environment for all.
The Open Doors Free Online Training will help you to build the confidence and key employability skills needed to secure your next job.
Created specifically to meet the needs of jobseekers, this training will help to prepare you for the entire journey to work, from finding and applying for a job, to being successful in the workplace.
