|GLADNET is an organisation which works to make sure|
that people with disabilities have the same chances to work as anyone else.
GLADNET wants to put together a group of people who work to make sure
that workers with disabilities have the support they need to do their jobs.
GLADNET is looking for new people to be part of this group.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities provides an opportunity to spotlight supported employment as a strong instrument in achieving the goals mentioned in its Article 27. For this reason The Global Applied Disability Research and Information Network on Employment and Training (GLADNET) has set up a Research Network on Supported Employment and is now seeking for researchers on the matter.
Based on input from members of GLADNET and other researchers in the field of Supported Employment, a Supported Employment Researchers Network has been developed as part of GLADNET. The Supported Employment Researchers Network can operate from its own agenda and be facilitated for specific meetings through webinars and Skype. Information can be disseminated from the network, and input for the network can come through the GLADNET contacts and cooperative links with international organizations.
The Supported Employment Researchers Network is still in a developmental phase. Interested researchers are very welcome to join the Research Network as part of GLADNET under the GLADNET conditions. Researchers can participate as individual members or as part of a group. More details are available at the GLADNET website, www.GLADNET.org.
