Are you a youth or young adult who has a non visible disability and who identifies as belonging to a racial and/or ethnic minority group? Consider participating as part of a larger study about youth with disabilities’ experiences in looking for work or being employed.
What is this study about?
We want to understand your experiences looking for work or being employed. Specifically, we want to learn about how your identity impacts your workplace or job job-seeking experiences. In addition, we want to learn about disability disclosure and how youth with non-visible disabilities ask for accommodations in the workplace.
Who can participate?
We are looking for:
- Youth with a non-visible disability aged 15-30
- Identify as belonging to a racial and/or ethnic minority group
- Able to speak in English (or with the help of an interpreter)
- Currently employed or have work experience
Participants will be asked to take part in:
- One interview (approx. 1 hour) over the phone or over Zoom video communications
What are the risks and benefits of participating?
- A benefit of participating includes helping us to learn about disclosure and accommodation processes to better meet the needs of racialized youth with non-visible disabilities.
- You will receive a $25 gift card for participating
