Throughout our Inclusion Works webinar series, we heard from self-advocates who talked about the barriers they face in employment. 

This is a truly eye-opening series and a must-watch for business owners and employers around the globe.

Each episode was led by a self-advocate speaking on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities in their country.

"We have a right to live well. We need clothes, we need food, we need houses. For us to get money to buy all these things we need work. I have a right to work."

Muthoni from Kenya

"We have experiences and skills we can share with employers if given a chance. It is upon you, employers, to give us that chance, so people become aware that we exist and we are working, we can live an infinite life."

Samuel from Uganda

"If people with disabilities don't get opportunities then we will never know what they are capable of."

Eric from Rwanda

"We are loyal to our employers."

Favour from Nigeria

"Employers do not want to give us jobs as they do not understand our needs."

Fahim from Bangladesh

 "Employers are not willing to give us a reasonable salary."
