German EU Presidency 2007

2007 European Year of Equal Opportunities for All

Diversity at work


8th European Union of Supported Employment (EUSE) Conference, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Start Date: 12/06/2006
End Date: 14/06/2006

Our Conference, “Supported Employment – Working for All?” aims to promote good practice in Supported Employment as well as exploring how the model can be used with other disadvantaged groups. The Conference will also pose the question “Is Supported Employment working for all?” and if not, why not?

Join us in this platform to exchange information, knowledge and expertise and also take the opportunity to debate and discuss as well as to celebrate our achievements. We recognise that Supported Employment is not a new concept in Europe but it still provides the most inclusive and successful employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

2007 has significant importance as the European Union has designated 2007 as the "European Year of Equal Opportunities for All", a theme which will run throughout the Conference.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to delegates from Europe, Eastern Europe, America, Australia and beyond.

3rd International Forum on Disability Management, Brisbane, Australia
Start Date: 07/10/2006
End Date: 10/10/2006

Many of the people receiving disability benefits are capable of working and want to work, but are discouraged from finding jobs because of faulty government policies, states a recent OECD report. OECD countries spend at least twice as much on disability-related programmes as they spend on unemployment programmes. Disability benefits on average account for more than 10% of total social spending.

The forum should be of interest and relevance to many, including representatives of business, labour, government, disability management and return to work practitioners, insurers, medical rehabilitation specialists, allied health professionals, human resource personnel, recruiters, researchers and individuals from the disability community.

The forum will offer an outstanding opportunity to gather general knowledge during the plenary sessions and undertake targeted actions at parallel workshops. Subjects will be reviewed from many different angles. What is being undertaken at employers' level? How are national and international politics getting involved? What have the different sectors and intermediaries achieved thus far?
