Behind the Mission: Inclusion and Disabilities at the World Bank Group

Follow the event on Twitter #BehindTheMissionWBG

For this episode of Behind the Mission, we talk to three staff members, each of whom has not only overcome their disabilities but have flourished in their careers at the World Bank Group. They share their insights and offer tips and advice on careers at the WBG. 

The Bank Group's recruitment policy is to hire staff of the highest caliber, on as wide a geographical basis as possible, with preference to nationals of WBG member countries or countries of operations.

Inclusion is key for Global Development. How do we ensure Government, Organizations and Countries at all levels have an inclusive policy for the disabled Community to ensure equal rights?

The World Bank has many different ways of embracing disability and inclusion across sectors and with our projects. In addition to a Disability Inclusion Fund to help provide for accommodations there is also an active employee resource group DARE that helps ensure that there is a strong voice for staff to express their concerns, ambitions and ideas.
