GLOBAL DISABILITY SUMMIT
The Digital Skills Accelerator Africa side event
Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Digital Industries:
The DSAA Approach
A major focus of the DSAA and the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation is to strengthen and promote an inclusive working environment. The DSAA has therefore made the promotion of equal opportunities for women and the inclusion of persons with disabilities part of its strategy. As a unique selling point, DSAA supports member companies with a range of activities to foster these objectives. In this endeavour, DSAA draws on local expertise and cooperates with local/national women rights experts and organisations as well as disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) in order to embed activities in national/local human rights ecosystems. Organizations working at the intersection of digitalization and inclusion represent particularly interesting partners for the DSAA.
In this session, DSAA aims to expound on its approach to the inclusion of persons with disabilities from Africa in digital industries and to highlight some of the achievements so far. The session is open to individuals and organizations with an interest in digital skills development, employment, innovation and the empowerment of persons with disabilities.
