Film about Inclusive Hiring
My friend Bandy Yanchyk is a well known Film Maker and Producer and I am excited to share an excited opportunity she told us about. We are really hoping that you can attend or at least encourage others to go to the screening of her new documentary “Employment Matters” about inclusive hiring which is screening at 10am on Friday, October 14th at the Commffest Global Community Film Festival in Toronto’s St. Lawrence market at the Imagine Cinemas (formerly Rainbow) at 80 Front East Toronto.
“Employment Matters” is a documentary that explores the untapped market and huge potential of the intellectually disabled in the workplace. The documentary was originally made for CBC in 2015.
There will be a discussion after the documentary about inclusive hiring. There will be a Q&A with
Brandy the filmmaker and Ann Marie Mac Dougall, President at LeaderBoom Inc. will also be part of a discussion moderated by Dini Petty, Professional Broadcaster.
If you know someone else who should be on the panel please let Brandy know.
We have attached posters for the screening of my documentary “Employment Matters”. Please
them advertise the event to anyone who you think would want to see a film and discussion about inclusive hiring for people with intellectual disabilities.
