Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2017
This description of Ireneusz Białek's work was prepared when Ireneusz Białek was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2017.
Having lost sight as a child, Irek perfectly understands the challenges faced by persons with disabilities both in the labour market and at university. After turning around the policy and standards related to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in university education, he now focuses on solutions in the area of employment. He empowers diversity and CSR managers so that they become true ambassadors of change transforming the corporate culture from within by employing staff based on their talent and ensuring equal treatment and a good working environment for all.
