"EASPD Conference Employment of Persons with Disabilities: Raising Awareness & Employment Opportunities"
We are glad to invite you to the International Conference on the Employment of Persons with Disabilities: Raising Awareness & Employment Opportunities, which will take place in Istanbul on 27th and 28th September 2013 !
EASPD is co-organising the event with the Turkish Authorities, in close co-operation with ISKUR, the RACE consortium & the Dolunay Association. The event is also supported by the Council of Europe, the European Commission and the International Labour Organization.
The conference will tackle the main challenges preventing people with disabilities from enjoying fully their right to work: legislative frameworks, discriminative attitudes and lack of adequate support schemes.
The Event will look at the current situation and discuss future steps needed to facilitate access to the labour market for persons with disabilities. We will focus on the perspective of employees, looking at different approaches promoting employability, and on that of employers, by examining how they can be supported to successfully employ disabled people.
The topics will be discussed by multi-stakeholders panels composed of persons with disabilities, policy makers, representatives of employees and employers, authorities and support providers.
In addition, the conference will also provide the best employment agencies and employers with an official award.
