The 2018 Annual Workability International Conference may be over....but the lessons learned will go on
Samhall and Workability International held the Lead the Way conference in Stockholm, 28-30 May 2018. There were three days of workshops, keynote speakers and presentations by inspiring thought leaders and top decision makers. Together we learned from each other’s best practices which will help us all lead the way towards equity in employment for people with disabilities everywhere.
We celebrated 30 years of international cooperation as Workability International stepped into our fourth decade of championing the rights to work for people with disabilities.
