What is BroadcastAbility?

BroadcastAbility is a podcast series chronicling the experiences of people with visible physical and/or sensory disabilities who have successfully surmounted barriers to employment, as well as managers and businesses leaders at inclusive workplaces. It is an extension of the multi-year investigative work on disability and employment conducted by researchers Dr. Chloë Atkins and Dr. Andrea Whiteley of The PROUD Project (Phenomenological Research/Remedies on Employment and Disability) at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Easter Seals Canada is proud to work with The PROUD Project on the BroadcastAbility podcast initiative. To learn more about The PROUD Project, visit their website at
