The event - Building an Inclusive Europe through Supported Employment - is hosted by the Irish Association of Supported Employment and the European Union of Supported Employment. The conference is an associated event of the Irish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which means it could potentially play a role in shaping employment and social policy affecting almost 500 million European citizens.
Last year, IASE won the bid to host the EUSE conference in Ireland for the first time since 1995. Speaking at the launch, Teresa Mallon, IASE national chairperson, said she believes the conference offers a golden opportunity for Ireland to consider its progress to date and how the country can further promote equality at work by supporting people with disabilities into jobs. “This European conference will place significant emphasis on the positive contribution individuals with a disability can make to the workplace as well as exploring the challenges and solutions to more inclusive employment practices and worksites.”
