Employment Coordinator and former business manager Jane Fiedorek has been acknowledged for her leadership and taking action to help people with disabilities. She has received the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) 10th Anniversary Champion Award, following a nomination process.
The award, presented by the Province of Ontario and the Association of Municipal Clerks & Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO), celebrates the 10th anniversary of the AODA and the leadership of accessibility champions across the province. The AODA 10th Anniversary Champion Award was presented by Mayor Ken Hewitt at the November 23rd meeting of Haldimand County Council.
At PATH Employment, we help a lot of clients with a wide range of abilities find and keep meaningful employment. To best help our clients, we are always looking for new tools that we can use to help employees in the workplace. The team here at PATH has researched mobility devices, accessible computer software and most recently, something we are very excited about, a professional accessible timepiece, the Bradley by Eone.
Now we say timepiece for a specific reason. It is not a conventional watch. The timepiece is designed to look both workplace professional and make it easier for people who may be visually impaired to be able to tell the time through the use of two tactile ball-bearings.
