According to the New Indian Express, the “Career Expo 2019 for Persons with Disabilities” was put together with an aim to educate both the differently abled and the corporates. While the differently-abled were provided with information on the necessary skills that would increase their employability, the corporates, on the other hand, were given insights on building a more inclusive workspace.
