Andrey Nikolaev, General Director of Optic fiber Systems JSC: "An inclusive approach is becoming part of the modern world in social sphere. Society is becoming more and more aware and declares that health complications should not be a barrier to normal life, self-realization and socialization of any person. However, we must admit that inclusive approach to the organization of industrial production as an accessible working environment is a complex initiative that requires significant efforts in order to adapt standard processes and search for non–standard solutions. Therefore, we are still at the very beginning of the journey. I am convinced that joining the National Inclusive Agreement is an important step for the company in creation of new approaches and practices that promote the agenda of equal rights and opportunities."
