Hiring the disabed – the social firm face to face with business.

How do social companies differ from ordinary employers of people with disabilities? Is it worth supporting the professional development of the handicapped? Is it realistic to prepare them for the free labour market? Do our fellow citizens with serious health issues have a chance of making it? What is the role of social companies in the complex integration of the handicapped and needy into fully-fledged life?

Taking part in the debate will be Jan Hutař, Jiří Herynek, founder of the disabled cooperative Ergotep Proseč, and Vojtěch Sedláček, founder of Agentura ProVás.

Evening organised by the Committee of Good Will – Olga Havlová Foundation.

Speech in Czech Parliament

„After all our identity does not consist of our talking about it and constantly shouting over the place that “we are Czechs, we’re the best”, but of our being capable of saying something original to others, of creating something that can attract others but is unlikely to originate elsewhere.“

Václav Havel:
Speech in Czech Parliament, March 12, 1996
