Don't Dis my Ability 2017
Sunday, 3 December
International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) is celebrated annually in NSW with the Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign. It encourages communities in NSW to think and act inclusively, in all aspects of life.
The campaign celebrates the diversity and ability of people with disability. It is about promoting positive perceptions and building an environment that encourages active inclusion at work, school, at home, in the community and in social activities. It is also about providing a platform for people with disability to have a voice and celebrate their achievements.
After 14 years, the campaign will evolve into See The Possibilities, which aims to deliver positive perceptions about employing people with disability, which will empower the community to see the possibilities. Don’t DIS my ABILITY helped to build confidence and career aspirations in those with disability through profiling ambassador success stories, See The Possibilities is an extension of this and challenges workplaces to employ people with disability.
See The Possibilities is presented by Family and Community Services.
