"Lime Connect is a place where relationships grow. They are the forefront and a priority, and I encourage anyone who is not part of The Lime Network to give it a shot - it will definitely take you to the next level." - Niroshan Subramaniam, IBM Canada and Lime Canada Ambassador

Lime Connect, its NextGen Junior Board and Ambassadors - and its Canada corporate partners will host a Fireside Chat and reception on Thursday, May 10, 2018 in downtown Toronto that is designed for current university students and professionals - including veterans - who happen to have any type of disability. IBM Canada sales executive and longtime Lime Ambassador Niroshan Subramaniam will share how he successfully navigates having a career and living a full life with a disability - and tips for success - in his Fireside Chat titled, “No Limits: Driving Success at Work and in Life."

The engaging conversation will be followed by an intimate networking reception with Lime Network members and Canada corporate partners Bell, BMO, CIBC, CSIS, IBM Canada, Rogers and TD, who are always seeking to connect for current and future roles. This is a great opportunity to build relationships, and also learn about new opportunities if you happen to be seeking career advancement.

The large majority of disabilities are non-visible – 90% of those on campus and 70% in the general population - including those who are dyslexic or have ADD, depression, medical conditions and many others. University students and professionals with all disabilities are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
