The Workability Asia Conference 2019 will be held in Macau, China from Saturday 20 July to Monday 22 July 2019. This year, WAsia Conference is hosted by Macau Special Olympics and Workability Asia.

The theme of Workability Asia Conference 2019 is “Promote Corporate Social Responsibility: Increase Social Awareness of Inclusive Employment for People with Disabilities (PWDs)”. Recent years, “Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)” is a hot topic in Asia; encouraging and support People with Disability on employment is one of the methods to put CSR into practice. Develop a good relationship Corporate/ Employers and let them give more attention is a big step for PWDs in employment. Therefore, the main theme of this year is to deliver a message to the society, especially to Corporates, about PWDs’ abilities and dedication at work. Besides, we would like to discuss more on pre and post-employment workshop and support to PWDs and a scientific way to assist PWDs at work.
