Inclusion Europe received an award from the European Parliament for the “My Talents. For Diversity” project. The European Citizen’s Prize recognises initiatives that contribute to European cooperation and the promotion of common values. The project was funded by European Commission – under the “Rights, Equality and Citizenship” programme and the partners were Plena Inclusión, EVPIT, Antwerp Management School.
People with intellectual disabilities everywhere often find it very hard to find 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 worked on this issue by promoting diversity management amongst private and public employers.
The project mapped good practices in terms of inclusiveness around Europe and offered capacity building and training to employers and employees with intellectual disabilities. The trainings aimed to facilitate the process of employing people with intellectual disabilities, but also raised awareness amongst employers on the possibility of hiring them.
