Organization Utilizes Mentoring Software to Support Persons with Disabilities

The Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work helps people with disabilities break down barriers to employment by giving job seekers the tools and confidence to educate and market themselves. CCRW helps employers become leaders in socially and fiscally responsible hiring and retention practices. More than 1 in 10 working-age Canadians live with disability. CCRW is paving the way to a fully inclusive nation because disability should never stand in the way of ambition.

The Challenge

Normally a live, in-person event, Dolphin Disabilities Mentoring Day is an experiential learning opportunity that utilizes technology to bridge the communication and knowledge gaps between businesses, communities and employment organizations, and persons with disabilities. In the early days of event planning, CCRW was faced with the unprecedented realities of the Covid-19 Pandemic and the challenge of finding a way to create meaningful virtual connections while being forced to eliminate meeting in person.

The Knowledge Transfer Index provided mentorship pairs with the ability to build rapport and establish a meaningful connection in a virtual environment
