On the program: Agora “Disability, coexistence and growth, reality or utopia?” organized by Harmonie Mutuelle; “Duo Day” to allow a person with a disability to participate in the daily lives of uB employees; Conference with Josef Schovanec: “Strange people, the university and you: Welcome to Autistan!” as well as a number of internal podcasts to listen to online.

Tuesday November 15 – Multiplex room

5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.: Agora Mutualiste organized by Harmonie Mutuelle, “Disability, coexistence and growth, reality or utopia?” (free, after registration)

Do people with disabilities and non-disabled people really live together in society? Is the “normal” environment really suitable for citizens with intellectual or psychological disabilities? On the occasion of the European Week for the Employment of People with Disabilities, this Agora offers the opportunity for scientists, associations and managers of medico-social institutions to exchange views on coexistence, progress in this area and those still to be done.

Thursday November 17 – Duo Day

Volunteers give a person with disabilities (students or job seekers) the opportunity for a day to share their everyday life, to observe or to actively participate in uB life.

The goal is twofold:
– Enable people with disabilities to put themselves in a working situation, to review their choices or to discover a new job. The DuoDay also makes it possible to establish useful contacts when looking for a job.
– Discover the strengths and professional qualities of workers with disabilities in a warm and benevolent moment.

employees of uB with disabilities testify

People with disabilities are often reluctant to talk about their health problems at work for fear of stigma. This week, the University of Burgundy is giving four of them the floor to break down prejudice and show that a person with a disability or health problem is also a competent person. Objective: Allow employees to speak more freely about their health issues without fear of prejudice by receiving a benevolent welcome.
