Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace has been a topic that has gained traction over the past several years, but what does that really mean? Marco will share some of his personal lived experiences as a person with a disability in the workforce, what it was like to build a business from the ground up and how utilizing the 9 essential skills can make changes in attitude, the physical environment and the way to interact with others to make a lasting impact as we move towards the future of inclusive workplaces across Canada.     

This session will be ASL interpreted for D/deaf, deafened, or hard-of-hearing attendees. 

Marco Pasqua is an award-winning Entrepreneur, Accessibility Consultant and Inspirational Speaker with Cerebral Palsy. Throughout his life, Marco has been involved with a number of organizations as a spokesperson, helping to spread advocacy for persons with disabilities across Canada. As an Accessibility and Inclusion Consultant, he has worked with some of BC's biggest change-driven business leaders who are champions for more accessible, inclusive workplaces. It's through these experiences that he is helping to pave the way for all Canadians to have universal access to the programs, services and places that they live, work and play.
