Breaking down the barriers
The Call to Action for the Pact was organised in the European Parliament on 26 May and chaired by MEP Adam Kosa.
The Pact was first presented to stakeholders, at the same venue, on 24 March. The event was hosted by MEP Rosa Estaras-Ferragut under the title “Breaking down the barriers: Access to employment and the economics of brain health”.
Paving the Path to Participation
The Employment Pact has been developed as part of EMSP’s EU-funded Paving the Path to Participation project.
Whether you represent a small or medium size business or are part of a larger multi-national organisation, the Pact is a step towards recognising the value and importance of policies that enhance workplace health and promote diversity.
