British Council and Dr.Reddy’s Foundation invite you for a talk by Justin Jesudas addressing barriers that prevent inclusion of differently abled persons at work place. 

While it is common knowledge that differently abled persons face various challenges at every stage of their life, the biggest hurdle they encounter is the general reluctance to appreciate their abilities as a result of inherent attitudes and beliefs. 

Date: Saturday 10 February 2018

Time: 4.00 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.

Venue: British Council Chennai
