Global Careers for Persons with Disabilities – Online Event – 14.10.20
Bringing international public sector organisations and Persons with Disabilities together
Until recently, Persons with Disabilities represented a relatively untapped segment of talent. Recent research1 indicates that hiring from this demographic delivers substantial financial, human, and operational benefits – whether the recruiting organisation is the UN, the EU, a regional development bank, or an international specialised organisation.
On 14 October 2020, Global Careers and leading international organisations such as UNHCR, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), UNDP, UNV, The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and IFC (World Bank Group) will host the first of a series of online recruitment events dedicated to Persons with Disabilities from around the world.
You can join this exciting online event from the comfort of your home or office. Just use your web browser and internet connection and you can engage with international employers – enabling you to explore a wealth of career opportunities.
UNHCR, IOM, UNDP, UNV, IDB, and IFC have confirmed their attendance and a full list of participating organisations will soon be available.
