Sommet International Formation emploi & handicap / 8-9 avril - Paris, Marriott Champs Elysée


The future of work must be inclusive 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.
