Disability in the Workplace in China: How to Move the Needle

MAY 22, 2019


A staggering 85 million people currently live with a disability in China—most of them severely underutilized in the labor market. But given falling labor participation rates and a rapidly aging workforce, can China still afford to ignore this significant share of its workforce? Can employers? 

Join this special webcast to receive:

  • A deeper understanding of the living and working conditions of people with disabilities in China;
  • Information on Chinese government approaches to improving employment for the disabled population, and the implications of these approaches for business;
  • Insight into the effective approaches companies are using to employ people with disabilities in China, including motivations, successes, challenges, and impacts; and
  • Practical guidance on international approaches and best practices for employing people with disabilities, and to what extent these can be leveraged in China.

Who Should Attend: Executives responsible for HR and Talent Acquisition, Diversity & Inclusion, CSR, or other functions related to disability in the workplace in China, as well as C-suite members interested in this topic.
