The ILO Global Business and Disability Network (GBDN) is partnering with the Zero Project to encourage companies to nominate their good practices in the area of disability-inclusive employment.

The Zero Project focuses on researching and advancing innovative solutions for the inclusion of persons with disabilities. It has established a global network of more than 10,000 experts, policy makers, and other changemakers to support the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The ILO GBDN webinar “Disability-inclusive Employment: Corporate Nominations for #ZeroCall25 on 24 April 2024 presented the Zero Project Call for Nominations 2025 (#ZeroCall25), which focuses on the topics of disability-inclusive and accessible employment.

#ZeroCall25 opens 8 May 2024 and calls on innovative solutions from around the world and all sectors of society to submit their nominations. A select number of solutions will receive a Zero Project Award, support through the Zero Project Network and other opportunities to advance their innovations. The webinar speakers will discuss the benefits of nominating corporate practices and the process to do so.
