Inclusive Employment Broker
University of Regina

Donna Flaman-Johnson is the Inclusive Employment Broker with the 4to40 program – supporting individuals who experience intellectual disabilities in their job search. 4to40 was established in 2014 as a collaborative inclusive employment initiative between Creative Options Regina (COR) and the University of Regina’s Inclusive Post-Secondary Education Initiative, Campus for All. 4to40’s mandate is to connect people experiencing disability with forward-thinking employers.

Donna holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Regina and has over 30 years experience, working for both the provincial and federal government in Human Resources in various professional capacities. She has a heart for helping the disabled in both their personal and professional endeavours – and is truly inspired by the organizations who open themselves to putting people first and seeing the possibilities and contributions a person with an intellectual disability can make.

Creative Options Regina (COR) is a for-impact, charitable organization that develops personalized support services for people experiencing disability. Rooted in the philosophy of Gentle Teaching, COR strives to strengthen the fabric of companionship and community for all those they serve. COR’s innovative approach to care giving is grounded in the recognition and celebration of the intrinsic value of each person.

Campus For All is funded by the University of Regina and supports select students who have an intellectual disability, characterized by limitations in both cognitive functioning (such as learning, reasoning, problem solving and planning) and adaptive behaviour (such as conceptual skills, social skills, and practical skills). The program focuses on three aspects to inclusive post-secondary education: academics, social connections and employment.
