Leading toward an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID-19 world

This week we will mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), aligning with the theme for this year, Building back better: towards an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 world by, for, and with persons with disabilities. This year’s theme focuses on recognizing the impact the pandemic had on people living with disabilities and the immediate response necessary through open, inclusive, and innovative digital solutions, tools, and resources.

With many industries looking to return to “normal,” we must continue to keep inclusivity and the disability community at the forefront of planning and policies. Using this past year as a learning experience helps us to better understand diverse communities to further enrich and enable people’s work and daily lives.

Through our Adobe For All vision, we strongly believe that everyone deserves respect, equal treatment, and opportunity, and that we must actively work to build diverse and inclusive workplaces and communities. We support employee engagement and diversity and inclusion with our employee networks, including Access at Adobe, to help employees build a supportive culture of inclusivity. When people feel respected and included, we believe they can be more creative, innovative, and successful.

Below is a list of events we are hosting in December to help recognize this important milestone and impactful community:

While International Day of Persons with Disabilities promotes and recognizes disability inclusion on this special day, we’re committed to empowering our employees and colleagues year-round. We will continue to share more of our initiatives and stories throughout the year and help promote and encourage others on the importance of accessibility.
