Empowering diverse abilities in Barcelona

Capacitats Diverses
Catalonia (Barcelona)

Juan Gimenez is a technician at Diputació de Barcelona (DiBa). Every day, he has to analyse websites to search for errors – methodical work that is perfectly suited to people with his Asperger Syndrome. Juan was hired within the DiBa’s Capacitats Diverses programme, because the Diputació wants to go beyond the expected quotas in hiring people with disabilities.

Watch ► It’s a win-win approach for both the government body and Juan.
