UN Convention

The right to employment is a human right – also for people with a disability.

We believe that the employment of specialist people in jobs that are meaningful to them, and that add value to companies, is the key to improving the integration of people with ASD into society.

Specialisterne Foundation will support nations in fulfilling the intentions within the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities by providing showcases on employment of specialist people covered by Article 27.

Article 27 states “the right of persons with disabilities to work, on an equal basis with others,” and prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all matters of employment, including the “conditions of recruitment, hiring and employment, continuance of employment, career advancement and safe and healthy working conditions.”

We would like to invite states who have ratified the UN Convention to partner with us and showcase that employment is possible even with an invisible disability.
