It sought to give young people with disabilities a special chance and platform so they could improve their employability and entrepreneurial skills and eventually contribute to the nation’s sustainable economic development.

The Ghana Federation for Disability Organizations (GFD) and other national and international partners partnered with Standard Chartered Bank Ghana PLC to organize the career fair, which gave attendees a chance to network with companies that support inclusive workplaces.

Roughly 38.5% of families in Ghana have individuals with disabilities who are below the national poverty level. Compared to homes without individuals with disabilities, those with disabilities experience a notably higher rate of poverty.

The significance of diversity and inclusivity in the workplace is becoming more widely acknowledged, necessitating deliberate and coordinated efforts to eliminate obstacles standing in the way of disability inclusion and the full and equal involvement of people with disabilities in the workforce.

Mansa Nettey, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Standard Chartered, reaffirmed the bank’s dedication to creating inclusive and sustainable communities while speaking at the Accra event.

According to her, it’s critical to create an environment at work where anyone with the potential to succeed can do so.
