N.C.P.E.D.P partners with C.I.I. for Conference on Disability
D.N.I.S. News Network- National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (N.C.P.E.D.P.) will partner with Confederation of Indian Industry (C.I.I.) to host a path-breaking conference titled “Disability: Mainstreaming the Marginalised”.
The conference aims to create awareness about the status of disabled people in the country, to discuss issues of inclusion and access, to help assess a fit between persons with disabilities and job requirement, to understand skill training needs, to use feedback from companies working with the disabled and to provide a networking platform for organisations working for people with disabilities and corporates.
According to a C.I.I. invite, India has over 70 million disabled people and out of this a large percentage suffers from disabilities, which with pertinent training, can become productive and contributing members of society.
The corporate sector, to some extent, is becoming an essential partner in identifying opportunities to enhance the economic participation of people with disabilities. C.I.I. would like to engage all its members in this to realize that a vast number of people with disabilities have the potential to make a positive difference to the business community.
Apart from top brass of C.I.I. and disability experts, including officials from the Government of India, President of India is also expected to attend this important event.
The conference will end with the formation of a group of volunteers from different areas of specialisation to jointly work for this cause. On the sidelines, an exhibition is planned to showcase products handcrafted by disabled people.
