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.

Letters to Olga – essays written in prison, letter

„If I consider the problem as that which the world is turning me into – that is, as a tiny screw in a giant machine, deprived of human identity – then there is really nothing I can do. Obviously I cannot put a stop to the destruction of the globe, the growing stupidity of nations and the repoduction of thousands of new thermonuclear bombs. If, however, I consider it as that which each of us originally is, or rahter what each of us – irrespective of the state of the world – has the basic potential to become, which is to say an autonomous human being, capable of acting responsibly to and for the world, then of course there is a great deal I can do.“
