Many companies are looking to drive their disability agenda forward in Asia.  However with a focus on quotas and recruitment many are struggling to make progress.  On Day 2, we look at how disability employee networks can be key to building disability confidence.  We also broaden the discussion on disability to include mental health - exploring the role of companies in promoting the emotional wellbeing of employees as well as the emerging trend of mindfulness in the workplace.
