Staff Matters! Disability Workforce of Tomorrow

The social welfare sector offers opportunities for meaningful work and continuous upskilling. The ‘Staff Matters! Disability Workforce of Tomorrow’ conference will open new perspectives on the present and future work of staff within the social welfare sector. How can staff support human rights in their work and promote the goals of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and what kind of expertise and leadership is needed? How can we create a working culture where a positive employee experience leads to a positive client experience in services for people in need of support?

The conference will portray human-centred, value-driven work in a positive light. The conference includes inspiring speeches by both Finnish and international specialists. The working languages of the conference will be Finnish and English.

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided.

Organiser: European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) and Service Foundation for People with an Intellectual Disability, in cooperation with KVANK, the network of disability organisations, and Inclusion Europe
