NDS invites presentation abstracts from interested parties for the Disability at Work and Workability International Virtual Conference 2020, “Disability employment in a digital world.” We are running this year’s Conference as a one-day Virtual Event on 12 October 2020 due to consequences arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

We encourage you to help design the format of this stimulating event, which in 2020 will include the input of employment service providers (open, supported, social enterprises and transition to work) and professionals from around the world.

The one-day virtual conference will examine world’s best practice in activating and engaging people with disability in a broad range of employment opportunities, particularly through the application of the latest technological breakthroughs.

NDS is calling for abstracts of presentations that will refine and enrich the delivery of employment supports for people with disability in a post COVID-19 environment. There will be a strong focus on harnessing technology to enhance access to employment, including case studies highlighting recent innovative solutions.

Abstracts must be submitted by 30 June 2020. Find details and instructions on the submission process for our Call for Papers as well as other information about the conference please visit the Disability at Work Conference webpage
