International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Around 15% of the world have a disability. As the World Health Organization puts it, people with disabilities are the largest minority group globally. It affects so many of us, yet it’s something that many of us don’t know much about or find tricky to talk about.


We know that discomfort should never stop us from talking about important subjects like disability. What we need to do is equip ourselves and our peers with the tools to have those conversations and act inclusively.


For International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd, we’ve created a bundle of content to give people everyday ways to be more inclusive of people with visible and invisible disabilities.


Too many disabled people continue to face prejudice... and are less likely to progress to senior management roles or to work in professional occupations
