People living with a disability, in both high- and low-income countries, experience significant barriers to accessing meaningful and competitive employment. Despite the passage of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the cumulative efforts of the disability rights movement, there is still a great deal of work to be done globally to realize equal rights in employment for people with disabilities. Viable solutions to reduce these inequities and advance equal rights and participation in the world of work for people with disabilities are crucial. Join us and an international group of government, academic, business and civil society leaders to discuss innovative and effective strategies to improve employment outcomes for workers with disabilities. Together we will examine how to design policies and programs that really work.
