Innovative Practices 2013 on Employment
Economic and social inclusion
|Name of Innovative Practice:||Economic and social inclusion|
|Organisation:||Lebanese Physical Handicapped Union/Unlocking Potentials|
Together with private sector employers, Unlocking Potentials develops policies on inclusive workplaces that benefit a wider group of persons with disabilities (PWD) and disadvantaged workers, and maintain them in decent work. Advocacy and policy development with employers are linked to wider advocacy with the government in order to promote social economic inclusion, ratify the UN CRPD, and implement Law 220(2000). This is being done in collaboration with the national employers’ forum network developed by this programme. Moreover the programme increases the capacities of vocational training providers and civil society organisations in supporting PWD.
