employability for people with disability and a more diverse and richer workforce. The event will
provide an open forum for discussion and allow the audience to hear directly from NGOs and private
sector as well as showcasing some of the best practices of NGOs and employers.

The event will be keynoted by Hungarian MEP Adam Kosa who heads up the Disability Intergroup
