“You’re Disabled, You Can’t Fly!” Or Can You?

When I first crossed the doorstep of an American high school as a 17-year-old new immigrant from Russia, my jaw dropped – kids in wheelchairs were playing tag in the wide hall, a cute teen-age couple was communicating animatedly in what appeared to be sign language; a blind boy was walking next to a classmate laughing at some kind of a joke. I turned to my American cousin and asked in still rudimentary English, “Immigrants here sent to special handicapped school?”



6th International Disability Film Festival Breaking Down Barriers

Perspektiva, a Russian Disability NGO, is now accepting submissions for its Sixth International Disability Film Festival “Breaking Down Barriers.”

 

"Labels"

"Labels" was produced by the Art Video Studio in the framework of the project "Mobilizing the Disability Community to Speak out for the Rights of Persons with Mental Disabilities," implemented by the Russian Disability NGO Perspektiva, with support from the Open Society Institute. Financial support to produce, translate and subtitle the film was also provided by the UN Russia office. "Labels" premiered in Moscow on October 18 to a crowd of nearly 600 people. It will also be screened in Moscow in November and December, 2011, at two prestigious documentary film festivals.



Disability in the Workplace: Employers' Organizations and Business Networks

 
 
Page 31:
 
The Business Advisory Board on Disability (BABD) is a consortium of businesses that is committed to raising disability awareness and promoting disability issues in the business community. It was created in 2008 by Russian and international companies: ANCOR, Clever, Citi, Clifford Chance, Coleman Services, DPD, Ernst & Young, Hewlett Packard, Johnson & Johnson, KPMG, Microsoft, Naim.ru, Nike, Raiffeisen Bank, Transaero, and the Regional Society of Disabled People – Perspektiva – a disability NGO.
 
The BABD developed out of a group of businesses that Perspektiva had been working with to find jobs for youth with disabilities in Moscow. When Perspektiva launched its employment programme in 2003, it provided job support and training for youth with disabilities and collaborated with employment agencies. However, it soon became clear that people with disabilities would be more successful in finding jobs if Perspektiva and the business community worked in partnership. Perspektiva learned about networks of businesses in other countries that were also promoting employment opportunities, such as the UK Employers Forum on Disabilities (EFD) and the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN). In 2008, it secured a grant from the UK Embassy in Moscow to collaborate with EFD in a project that would aim to develop a similar network in Moscow. The BABD was the result of the project.
