Talent Untapped – Documentary about employment and persons with disabilities
Journalist Anna Karina Tabunar is creating a documentary on employment of persons with disabilities. “Talent Untapped” was officially launched in Ottawa on December 4, 2014.
Ms. Tabunar comments: “People with disabilities form the fastest growing minority group in the world. In Canada, they are one in eight of us. As a veteran broadcaster, journalist and communications professional, I became part of that minority when I was deemed “disabled” and unable to work.
As I was recovering from a rare neurological condition, my inner circle of support came from people who happen to live with disabilities. Many of them were shut out of the workforce, living hand-to-mouth.
Why is it that the majority of people with disabilities are unemployed or underutilized? Talent Untapped chronicles my journey for answers.”
