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 Vladimír Dlouhý, president of the Czech Chamber of Commerce, 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.

Power of the Powerless – samizdat essay

„Technology – that child of modern science, which in turn is a child of modern metaphysics – is out of humanity’s control, has ceased to serve us, has enslaved us and compelled us to participate in the preparation of our own destruction. And humanity can find no way out: we have no idea and no faith, and even less do we have a political conception to help us bring things back under human control. We look on helplessly as that coldly functioning machine we have created inevitably engulfs us, tearing us away from our natural affiliations (for instance, from our habitat in the widest sense of that word, including our habitat in the biosphere) just as it removes us from the experience of Being and casts us into the world of “existences”.“
