The project "Different Worlds at Work" is sponsored by the University Centre SInAPSi, as part of its support to the working of the graduating students and graduates with disabilities at the University of Naples Federico II.
In recent years it has become clear to many companies in many countries, especially in the United States and Great Britain, that the development of the differences and encouragement of the inclusion in the workplace can make a huge opportunity and a competitive advantage for the business. The work done so far, within the University, in the area of disability revealed significant requests from users regarding the coordination of studies with work. These requests are also particularly urgent given the current economic and social work. In this context, people with disabilities are likely to be fully excluded.
The main problem identified by the project concerns the link between the university and the world-work for students and graduates of University Federico II, it should encourage and value the differences and the inclusion than job placement. This could be a great opportunity for students and lead to a concrete, mutual competitive advantage for the university and the business. The institutional connection between the University and the company work, carried out by the Management diversity goes well beyond a vague commitment to ensuring equal opportunities: it is to make the establishment of a truly respectful of all differences and able to assure everyone the opportunity to realize their potential for professional growth. It is in this way that we are going to build a true meritocracy in which the success of each business is based solely on talent, ability and quality of potential job performance, and that has nothing to do with their personal characteristics such as gender, disability, age or ethnic origin.
