The future of work demands the inclusion of people with disabilities! Towards a prospective vision of employment worldwide
Global practices and laws in favour of disability employment are changing, especially in Africa, Asia and Europe, and we must adapt to these changes. At the 2019 Harkin Summit, keynote speakers from all over the world will talk to us about their experience, share their good practices and explain the challenges to be addressed, and together we will find innovative ways of improving disability employment.
Behind this summit: a man committed to the inclusion of people with disabilities and an NGO recognised internationally for its work alongside the most vulnerable.
- United States Senator for Iowa, Tom Harkin (Ret.), founder of the Harkin International Disability Employment Summit.
- Humanity & Inclusion (former Handicap International), co-winner of the Nobel Peace prize, committed to improving the inclusion of people with disabilities.
