March 21, 2021, World Down Syndrome Day.
On the occasion of the worldwide celebration of Down syndrome, AIPD (the Italian Association supporting people with Down Syndrome and the Valueable Project Coordinator) launched an “immersive” video, to tell how a few minutes of glance can lead to a deep connection…
Valueable Network set up in December 2016. Now it is present in 6 European countries (Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Hungary and Turkey) and counts on more than 100 hospitality employer members which:
• host internships and /or hire people with intellectual disabilities. (At least one internship in two years of minimum three weeks, even from other countries);
• do not discriminate people with intellectual disabilities as far as selection, recruitment, training and career development;
• raise staff awareness (in particular managers and those in charge of recruitment and training).
So, even though AIPD and other associations of the network celebrate the World Down Syndrome Day, Valueable Network partners work towards the job inclusion of all the people with intellectual disabilities.
