Conducting a Lecture on Career Support for Students with Disabilities


Mar 6, 2024

On January 18 (Thursday), 2024, APU held a lecture aimed at students and faculty members interested in the topic of students with disabilities and working with individuals with disabilities. Approximately 20 people participated in the event.

During this lecture, two alumni who have found employment in companies in Oita Prefecture shared their experiences, from student life as students with disabilities to job hunting and their current job roles. Additionally, Ms. Emi Eguchi from Omron Taiyo Co., Ltd., which has been employing people with disabilities since 1972, also spoke at the event. She discussed the current situation surrounding employment for people with disabilities and the initiatives taken by companies that employ students with disabilities.

Participants expressed positive feedback, with comments such as "Until now, opportunities to learn about the career paths of students with disabilities have been limited, but the lecture deepened my understanding," and "I could feel that the panelists have a very accepting attitude towards others."

Moving forward, APU will continue such initiatives in collaboration with the Center for Inclusive Leadership (CIL)* and various offices, promoting DE&I (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) within the university, including diverse career support for students.
