The day is geared to fostering the professional insertion of disabled persons and to raising awareness among EDHEC students and staff of the various types of disabilities, sports for persons with disabilities, and management issues that concern persons with disabilities. The day will mark the start of a campaign to raise awareness of non-visible disabilities to be run jointly by EDHEC and BETC.
Music’All is a not-for-profit association regulated by France’s Law of 1901 and founded in 1996 with an artistic, social and charitable purpose. Each year, the association works with mentally handicapped children from the IM Pro Le Roitelet educational institution and the Les Papillons Blancs de Tourcoing association to create a musical that is performed on stage. The ensuing profits are donated to a selected project for the disabled. For more information: www.musicall-edhec.com

The association also seeks to raise participants’ awareness of handicapped sport and handicap management issues and to bring them into contact with handicapped athletes during the event.
