By: Aquent

LAST UPDATED: 01 December, 2023

As the world gears up to commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd, we, the Diversity & Inclusion Council at Aquent Netherlands, are excited to celebrate the incredible tapestry of talent that makes our creative community so vibrant.

This United Nations-sanctioned day serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of recognising and advocating for the rights of individuals with disabilities. At Aquent, where creativity knows no bounds, it's crucial that we champion diversity in all its forms, ensuring that every voice is not only heard but celebrated.

Unleashing the Power of Diverse Perspectives

In the world of creative recruitment, we understand that innovation thrives in environments that embrace diverse perspectives. People with disabilities bring unique viewpoints, skills, and talents that can transform the landscape of creativity. From visual artists to writers, designers to strategists, there is an abundance of untapped potential waiting to be explored.

Breaking Barriers in the Creative Sphere

One of the hallmarks of a truly inclusive creative agency is its ability to break down barriers. On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, let's reflect on the steps we can take to ensure our spaces are accessible to all. Whether it's physical accommodations, digital accessibility, or simply fostering an environment of understanding and support, there's always more we can do to make creativity truly inclusive.

Getting Involved: What You Can Do

As we approach this important day, we encourage each and every one of you to get involved. Share your thoughts on social media using the hashtag #AquentInclusion, engage in conversations about diversity and disability in the workplace, and take a moment to reflect on how you can contribute to a more inclusive creative community.

In conclusion, while we celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, let's recommit ourselves to fostering an environment where every individual, regardless of ability, can thrive and contribute to the rich tapestry of creativity that defines Aquent.

Remember, it's not just about meeting a quota; it's about embracing the endless possibilities that diversity brings to our creative pursuits.

Happy International Day of Persons with Disabilities!
