What are you doing that's innovative?
Did you have an idea or a process that's had a positive impact upon assisting people with a disability to gain employment?
Tell us about your great idea and our selection committee of ODEN’s volunteer panel of experts may invite you to exhibit at the 'Innovations Showcase' during the Rethinking Disabilities Conference being held October 23-25th, 2017 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North.
Those applications selected will be invited to participate in the “Innovation Showcase on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017. New for 2017, there will be a conference session dedicated for exhibitors to pitch their innovation to a selected panel. Each Innovation will have 10 minutes to impress the panelists.
Conference attendees will also be casting their votes to pick the "Innovator of the Year!"
The “pitch” and attendee voting will be given equal weighting in determining the “Innovator of the Year”.
In addition to the prestige of being known as the 'Innovator of the Year Winner' your employment service will receive:
- The Innovator of the Year Award plaque that can be proudly displayed
- Promotion through ODEN's extensive email and social media networks
- A special logo that you'll be able to incorporate into your letterhead, website, email and promotional materials
