Accessibility

 

We interpret accessibility in a broader sense – including not only the absence of barriers in built environments, but also the openness of spaces, organisations and social processes for as many persons as possible – of all ages, with and without disabilities. We firmly believe that the awareness of stakeholders (in politics, administration, organisations and companies) is a prerequisite for sustainable changes in this field.

15 Frauen mit Behinderung – 15 Wege zur Arbeit

This publication has been issued by the Austrian Labour Market Service (AMS) as a contribution to the "European Year of Equal Opportunities for All". The brochure wants to put a finger on the fact that women with a disability face specific and highly individual situations in the world of work, that they have very different points of departure and bring with them different strengths and abilities. The publication is based on interviews with 15 disabled women.
