Community Involvement

Since the beginning of the ICF, many people and entities have shown interest in contributing in different ways to the development of the project. For this reason, we have promoted several types of initiatives that allow the Community to play an active role in building solutions.

The ICF’s Council of Families and Council of Institutions are working groups that aim to ensure that the solution proposals developed are based on concrete needs and real cases.

In these Councils, the ICF gathers different types of actors in the same room, reporting on their work and challenging them to carry out a concrete action. Thus, the participants have the opportunity to be part of the designed solution, being active in the continuous discussion about the needs and challenges at hand and giving feedback on the ICF projects while building in the community and expanding their network.

The two Councils’ existence is due to the different groups that constitute them. The Council of Families consists of the people with disabilities themselves, their families, and anyone interested in the subject, as individuals. In turn, the Council of Institutions represents the entities – public, business, or Private Social Solidarity Institutions (Instituições Particulares de Solidariedade Social – IPSS) – that are interested in participating in the ICF.

If you would like to join us in the next sessions, please leave your contact information and click here to indicate in which Council you would like to participate (Council of Families or Council of Institutions).

Inclusive Talks are sessions organized by the ICF to promote its activity and involve specific groups of the community in the co-creation of initiatives.

Annual Edition: This is an annual event in which the ICF shares the new central theme to which it will dedicate itself, as well as the results of the previous theme.

Specific Edition: Working sessions aimed at specific groups of the community to boost the co-creation of initiatives developed under the ICF.

As a Nova SBE initiative, part of the Nova SBE Leadership for Impact Knowledge Center, the ICF offers different types of participation to its entire community. Students, academia, staff, corporate partners, and alumni are involved as participants in ICF initiatives and projects that can be incorporated into courses, dissertations, or theses, and student clubs.

Be part of our community!
