In the world of work, the relationship between disability and business is complex and still needs to be fully understood.  Effective policies and measures are needed in order to combat discrimination and to create enabling environments that are open, inclusive and accessible for persons with disabilities for their meaningful participation and inclusion at work.

Around the world, business, government, and civil society are forging new models of change.  This session brings together leaders from all three sectors to discuss their experience and share their vision for change and advancement.  We will discuss initiatives originating from North America, Europe, and Asia, each with promise of great hope and significant impact.
