Region 15 Updates

Summary of the Diversity Field Officer Program

Region 15 Mark Cottee - Tuesday, May 23, 2017

A joint program by Deakin University and Australian Federation of Disability Organisations.

The DFOS was developed as an employer engagement strategy to work directly with small and medium sized businesses to build ‘disability confidence’, as a result of research highlighting the ‘missing voice’ of businesses of this size, especially their experience, barriers and views of employing people with disability in Australia. The DFOS was piloted over 12 months commencing September 2015 with approximately 50 small to medium workplaces across over 15 industries in Geelong, a large regional centre in Victoria, Australia.
