National Job Shadow Day

8th Annual National Supported Employment Week Monday 20th – Sunday 26th April 2015

Job Shadow Day on Wednesday, 22nd April is the highlight of the week and will see hundreds of people with disabilities take the opportunity to shadow a workplace mentor as he or she goes about a normal working day.

Greg Barry, Chairman, Irish Association for Supporting Employment (IASE) said 'We want to build on this success and continue to break down barriers to the workplace which, despite much progress in recent years, still remains a significant issue for people with disabilities.' 

This year, the IASE is asking everyone to join in the conversation on social media - tweeting a workplace selfie under the hashtag #workie, taking a 60 second video explaining why you support Job Shadow Day, or by nominating a company you know to get involved under the hashtag #JSnominate (@IASEemployment).

Employers:
