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

„So-called contradictions between different schools of thought do not bother me in the least, and it doesn’t seem at all perverse to conduct oneself quite “situationally” in that regard. If a certain term, or terminology or theory seems apt in a given situation or context, I have no compunctions whatsoever about exploiting it to the full ( and I don’t mind if it makes me seem like an epigone). At the same time, however, I don’t feel the least bit bound by any “allegiance”.“
