Pathways success stories

“All the colleagues are extremely welcoming and have shown interest in who I am and where I come from. They treat me as if I’m just like any other one of their colleagues. As an organisation they have a lot of understanding for needing to take medical time or if something may take a little longer. I personally believe I have done really well since joining the organisation and I work with an amazing team.”

Kerry Walsh
Colleague Experience and Operations Coordinator 

“Before I joined Sage, I had already lost hope from previous institutions and the programs I participated in. The Sage Pathway Program rejuvenated everything. The welcoming, support and energy drive was excellent throughout the program. Considering how challenging it was to join the demanding environment, it was easier with the preparations and the support structure around the colleagues and the team leaders. I gained so much confidence to realize that disability is not inability. This changed my life; I would recommend anyone to join the incredible programme.”

Donald Mabokela
Technical Support Agent

“It’s been about 2-3 years working at Sage and it has indeed been a very enriching experience
for me. Sage is an organisation which offers opportunities for everyone to foster and grow both
professionally and personally, as a disabled individual I always feel included and accommodated.
Colleagues at Sage are extremely encouraging and sportive.”

Junior Reporting Analyst
