International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations day held on 3 December each year to celebrate the contributions and achievements of people with disability.
The UN theme for IDPwD this year is ‘Leadership and Participation of persons with disabilities toward an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID-19 world.’
By acknowledging this important day, we can take action to remove barriers for the 4.4 million Australians with disability and contribute to positive change in our workplace and in the community more broadly.
This year Guidestar will mark International Day of People with Disability by getting together to share stories and celebrate the clients we service.
Together, we can all take action to challenge stereotypes, remove barriers and promote inclusive and respectful attitudes and behaviours.
