NCPD presents at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus' First Biennial Conference on Disability

Dr. Beverly Beckles, Chief Executive Officer of the National Centre for Persons with Disabilities, made a presentation on the topic, Employment Inclusion in the Caribbean, at UWI Mona's First Biennial Conference on Disability which was held on March 11 & 12, 2014. Presenters gathered in an academic setting from across the Caribbean to examine the critical issues facing the sector of persons with disabilities.

During the Conference it was emphasized that there is a severe lack of reliable data and writing on disability issues in the region and this must be urgently addressed by persons serving in the sector. NCPD will be submitting a paper on the issue of Employment Inclusion to the academic journal that will proceed out of the Conference. The Centre is also seeking to strengthen its research focus to improve the knowledge base on disability in Trinidad & Tobago.
