As National Disability Rights Awareness Month draws to a close, AGRICOLLEGES international and Youth Bridge Trust issued an urgent call to corporate leaders and organisations. The “Empathy in action: Challenge for inclusion” campaign, aimed at fostering inclusivity and educational opportunities for people with disabilities, is in its final stretch.
With just days left until its conclusion on Sunday, 3 December, the campaign’s impact hinges on the active involvement of corporate leaders. This initiative stands as a testament to the collective power of organisations in creating a more inclusive society, says Wynand Espach, the COO and educational technologist at AGRICOLLEGES international.
The campaign outlines several pivotal components:
Social media challenge: Utilise the remaining days to share messages of support for people with disabilities using #EmpathyInAction. Extend the challenge to other corporate leaders and entities to amplify the cause.
Day of inclusion: It’s not too late to commit to participating in this transformative event on Sunday, 3 December. Engage directly with individuals with disabilities to understand their challenges and contribute to a more empathetic corporate culture.
Amplify awareness and fundraising initiatives: Maximise the final moments by organising events, workshops, or fundraisers supporting disability organisations. Share personal stories that highlight triumphs and obstacles faced by individuals with disabilities.
Last chance for educational insights: Attend the remaining webinars and utilise available resources to incorporate inclusivity into corporate environments. Collaborate with experts to gain invaluable guidance.
As the campaign nears its end, the call to action intensifies, says Espach. He believes corporate leaders hold the power to make a lasting impact in fostering inclusivity during the remaining days of National Disability Rights Awareness Month.
He says, “By actively engaging with those who face unique challenges every day, we can build a more inclusive world. Join us in the #EmpathyInAction.”
