“Talent has no boundaries. Workforce diversity includes persons with disabilities”
Just received a good news. My grant application to write a case study on employment of persons with disabilities (PWDs) has been approved. Money-wise it’s nothing to shout about. But this topic is close to my heart – have been wanting to research and write something about PWDs. So call it a soul filler ;).
So my team and I will be working with the Welfare Department of the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development. The grant is funded by the Ministry of Education, part of their initiative to enrich our local case study bank.
Malaysia has a policy on 1% PWD employment in public sectors. Apparently, this hasn’t been achieved. So we’ll be researching on how to help them to get closer to the target. I am passionately curious to find out.
Stay tune for updates.
