WorkBC will be hosting a speaker tomorrow morning (April 20) in Revelstoke, with an inclusive job fair to follow.
Victoria Maxwell will be speaking at the event first. Maxwell is a keynote speaker, workshop leader, and performing artist. Maxwell is known for her award-winning show, “Funny, You Don’t Look Crazy”, which catalogues the workplace “before, during, and after a bipolar disorder, anxiety, and psychosis diagnosis,” said a press release. Her presentation deals with mental illness visibility and stereotypes, using humour to help inform.
Following Maxwell’s presentation, there will be a job fair with nearly 20 businesses, most of which are local.
To take part in the fair, WorkBC invited people to sign up for free on the Eventbrite page. The doors for the event will open at 9:30 a.m. at the Revelstoke Community Centre, but the speaker will start at 10 a.m. The job fair and meet and greet with Maxwell will run from 11:30–1:30 p.m.
