Next generation work
People with intellectual disabilities everywhere often find it very hard to get a job. Most of them do not work, and those who do often do not get a (fair) salary. The ‘My Talents. For Diversity'-project tackles this issue by promoting diversity management amongst private and public employers. The focus is the employment of people with intellectual disability in the primary job market.
The project will:
- map good practices in terms of inclusiveness around Europe
- based on the results, write a policy briefing with proposals on how to improve anti-discrimination laws
- offer capacity building and trainings to future employers, colleagues and employees with intellectual disabilities. The trainings aim to facilitate the process of employing people with intellectual disabilities, but also to raise awareness amongst employers on the possibility of hiring them.
Financed by: European Commission – under the “Rights, Equality and Citizenship” programme.
Project coordinator: Inclusion Europe.
Project Partners: Plena Inclusion (Spain), EVPIT (Estonia), Antwerp Management School (Belgium).
Supported by: the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme of the European Union.
