On Wednesday 9th of April 2014, hundreds of individuals with disabilities throughout Ireland were afforded a unique opportunity to shadow a workplace mentor as he or she goes through a normal working day at hundreds of companies and employment sites throughout Ireland.
CDETB was delighted to welcome Susan Frost who came to learn some administrative skills in the busy HR and Education Departments and was mentored by Gill K’Eogh.
Nationwide Job Shadow Day, sponsored by IrishJobs.ie, is organised by the Irish Association of Supported Employment (IASE), promoting employment rights and access to work and training for all people with a disability in Ireland. Everyone from local businesses, community organisations to government departments, celebrity chefs and TV personalities got involved in this day to show their commitment to inclusion in the workplace by taking part on the day.
Congratulations to Gill K’Eogh for taking the initiative and well done to Colm McGuinness, John O’Shea, Dave McCarthy and Audrey Matthews who took time out to show Susan some aspects of their working day.
