Join us on December 3 for the first ever national cash mob in support of
International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD)
Gateway Association and Pan Disability Connection are
teaming up for Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM).
We want to support a local Michaels art and craft store for their
inclusive hiring practices and we need your help! Join us and
make a purchase between 2-4pm on October 29th. The
Michaels is located at 3741 17 Street NW, Edmonton. #DiversityAtWork
Visit Bon Ton Bakery on May 20th, between the hours of Noon and 2p.m. to help show that you support local businesses that hire inclusively.
In February of 2014 Gateway Association kicked off Edmonton’s first cash mob campaign of its kind, celebrating inclusive employers – those who hire inclusively by employing people with disabilities in meaningful, paid roles.
We have borrowed the cash mob idea from the Buy Local movement, and applied it to the We Belong movement – the pursuit and support in communities for meaningful, paid work opportunities for people with disabilities.
Throughout the campaign, we will periodically “cash mob” businesses that hire inclusively in and around Edmonton. The goal of the campaign is to reward forward-thinking businesses and to inspire others to consider hiring inclusively. It is also to bolster the buying power of the Disability Dollar in the marketplace.
Support continues to build in the community for our inclusive employment cash mobs. Stay tuned for our next cash mob location!
Gateway Association does not profit from cash mobbing. All proceeds go directly to the business as a reward for hiring inclusively.
