Inclusion is much more than accommodation
In honour of the International Day of Disabled Persons, I am sharing a collection of my articles related to accessibility and inclusion.
This year’s theme is transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world.
That’s a heady theme, but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Innovation is driven by people who saw that the current way of doing things either didn’t work for them, or had significant room for improvement.
People who think outside the box are often more creative and better problem-solvers than traditional thinkers because our minds work differently, therefore we see things from a different perspective.
We can use our unique viewpoints and lived experiences as inspiration for positive change.
