Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Job fairs organized by the Disability Network
In 2017, the Bangladesh Employers Federation established the Bangladesh Business and Disability Network (BBDN) to create a more disability inclusive workforce. BBDN is centred on advocacy, inclusion services and awareness raising through job fairs. They bring together employers, DPOs, and NGOs presenting experiences and practices to facilitate disability inclusion. Between 2017 and 2020, four job fairs were organized, resulting in more than 350 jobs with a retention rate of 80 per cent.
“I am feeling really great after getting a job, and I can stand on my own feet now.”
