Partner Resources

Thank you for joining our effort and using your networks to make the Employment Expo a huge success!

We need to get the word out far and wide so that employers, people with disabilities, and the variety of service-providing organizations in our communities are aware of the Expo and can participate in this unique opportunity.

All of the information that people will need to know is on our website, so we hope that you can encourage people in your networks to come and check it out! First think about how you can best use your existing informational processes and resources to promote the Expo – e.g. printed newsletters or bulletins, electronic newsletters and websites. Also think about whether or not you want to do something out of the ordinary like sending out a special email about the Expo to your friends, family and/or business associates or getting the Expo to be an agenda item on meetings that you attend. Are you active on social networks? Consider alerting your Facebook friends or LinkedIn connections to the Expo and our website.

However you chose to promote the Expo, here are a handful of resources that you might find useful:

  • Expo Posters
  • Bookmarks
  • Images
  • Email
  • Newsletter
  • Facebook
  • Twitter

Watch for our 2014 Employment Expo poster and Word Cloud Poster or copy the images below.

  •  You can print them out and tack them onto every bulletin board in your office! Don’t stop there, make copies for all the bulletin boards that you pass by; schools, grocery stores, churches, and community clubs – there are people with disabilities and employers throughout Winnipeg that we need to reach.
  • If you are planning to promote the Expo by email, use the posters as attachments

  • Meetings – Are you holding or attending meetings of your colleagues or associates who might have an interest in the Expo? Take a handful of bookmarks and pass them around.
  • Waiting Rooms – Do you have a waiting room for your clients or customers? Consider setting out some bookmarks that folks can pick up.
  • Inserts - Do you have regular mailings that go out to clients or customers? Think about dropping a bookmark in each envelope.
  • Conferences - Are you attending or exhibiting at a conference? Have a supply of bookmarks with you in case there is an opportunity to pass some out.

We have put together a small selection of images that you can readily copy and paste into your emails or websites.

Emailing your friends and business connections is a great way to get the word out, including a sample email message that might be helpful to you in composing your own!

We have a newsletter to keep everyone aware of the latest developments with the Expo. We also use it to keep subscribers aware of current resources and events on disability & employment issues. Encourage your contacts to sign up! You can also catch up on our Newsletter Archives.

Yes, we are on Facebook. “Like” us and get your friends to like us. It is another great way to keep tuned in to the latest Expo developments.

Follow us on Twitter. Let us tweet you and your associates to regular updates on the Expo.
