Let's face up to pre-conceived ideas!

On the occasion of the European Week for the Employment of People with Disabilities (SEEPH), Natixis is organizing Handi'Days in order to raise employees' awareness of the different types of disability situations and to promote an inclusive working environment.

This year's theme is mental disability, the leading cause of disability according to the WHO in 2020 and, on this occasion, conferences are held at Natixis with the participation of exceptional speakers.
