Building Disability Confidence Workshop

Vivek and me were in Banglore recently to participate in a workshop on Disability on 19th June. The event was organized by community business and TISA was one of the supporting organizations. The event was similar to TED talks. There were three "faces" who shared their experiences with the disability that they have. Vivek was one of them and he shared his story very candidly. Even better he stammered openly. After this the audience did some brain storming and tried to suggest some probable solutions to some of the challenges. It was very good to see stuttering out in open among many HR professionals and managers. Here is the video of Vivek's talk:

We also got a chance to attend the SHG meeting of Banglore and I must say that its a very lively and young group.

Nice video especially the experiences which Vivek said(notion of lack of self confidence, intelligence, finishing sentences etc). Great job
