The next DuoDay will take place in May 2021
DuoDay brings together people with disabilities, supported employment agencies and local employers for one day to promote equal employment opportunities across Europe. It highlights the positive contribution people with disabilities make at work.
Duoday, also known as Shadow Day, started in Ireland in 2008 and is now taking place in 9 countries across Europe. Scotland has joined this European movement in support of equal working rights for disabled people.
On 26 April 2018, SUSE hosted its first DuoDay, with the theme of Leadership. People with disabilities have leadership aspirations and ambitions and we want to showcase that these opportunities exist for them in Scotland.
Most recently on 16 May 2019 SUSE hosted its second Duoday, with the them being The Disability Employment Gap. In line with the aspirations set out in the Disability Employment Gap, SUSE wanted to highlight the contributions of supported employment services and the support they provide to jobseekers and employers. The next DuoDay will be Thursday 14 May 2020.
