The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has extended its cooperation agreement with Adecco for a further eight years to work on the IPC Athlete Career Programme (IPC ACP), which helps athletes into a new career.
The agreement was signed in London during the Paralympic Games and was attended by IPC President, Sir Philip Craven, and Adecco CEO Patrick De Maeseneire.
Adecco has been working with the IPC to expand the current programme from training and placement, to raising awareness about including people with a disability into the workplace.
“Integrating Paralympic athletes and people with a disability into the workforce has a long-standing tradition within Adecco, both through our Foundations and the IPC Athlete Career Programme,” said Mr De Maeseneire.
“Together with the IPC, we recognise the immense will, persistence and ability of Paralympic athletes to deliver. It is our goal to eliminate barriers to enable each person to gain access to meaningful employment.”
The IPC Athlete Career Programme runs in over 15 countries, with support from the International Paralympic Committee, National Paralympic Committees, Federations and Adecco.
