Experience in Disability and Difference

There are gaps, or perhaps more importantly opportunities, in the disability space. Talented job seekers with difference and disability can’t seem to find work and businesses who are looking for new talent can’t find a simple and effective way to access these candidates. Abilocity is less interested in why the gap exists – let’s leave that to government, policy experts and disability advocates. Abilocity‘s focus is bridging this divide with innovative training solutions, a laser focus on how companies can benefit from inclusion and helping talent discover and communicate their ability.

Disability and difference needs a fresh approach. ‘This is the right thing to do’ hasn’t moved the bar on wages or employment rates. Time for a new model.

Abilocity is:

  • Action oriented... we come to work each day prepared to translate words into measurable and pragmatic action.
  • Client-centric… we listen and effectively respond to the needs of our clients.
  • Inclusive... in how we collaborate, develop and deliver our services and training.
  • Transparent… in how we operate and communicate with our clients, job seekers, and stakeholders.

Abilocity provides consulting and training services in the area of employment, disability and inclusion to help individuals and organizations realize their potential. For the past six years, Abilocity's founding partners, Lisa Kelly and Deirdre Millin, have been assisting both individuals and businesses to see the ability in difference and disability.

Lisa Kelly has comprehensive experience in curriculum development, training, employment and communications. For the past three years she has been Director of Training at Canadian Business SenseAbility where she developed and delivered employment and disability related training to enterprise level employers. She has delivered training to post-secondary institutions on disability disclosure and has been asked to speak on disability panels for the University of Waterloo, Empower McGill, the Rotman School for Business, and enterprise level employers.  To see more, please visit Lisa's LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kellylmcareerspecialist/?originalSubdomain=ca

Deirdre Millin has extensive experience in training, communications, project management, curriculum development and working with clients who have significant barriers to employment. This past year, for Canadian Business SenseAbility, Deirdre launched a pilot project matching youth with disabilities to employers via a customized job matching portal,  called Life After School. She has developed and delivered successful trainings on employment for the Ontario College of Art and Design University, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Media Guild, Sobeys, CANNEXUS and the YWCA.
