Final Opportunity to Attend Inclusion Fundamentals Workshop – Improving Inclusiveness in your Organisation

Posted: 26 February 2014

Due to the relocation of our Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, DPA will be running our final Inclusion Fundamentals Workshop on Tuesday 18 March 2014. 

This workshop is designed for corporate, voluntary welfare and government organisations that are looking to make their workplace, programmes and services more inclusive. This workshop is also relevant for organisations that have adopted inclusive policies and want to ensure that they are on the right track. 

The session will cover a broad range of topics from understanding the relevance of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to your organisation, to how to make your existing services more accessible to employees or clients with disabilities. This workshop is especially useful to those looking to hire or which have hired persons with disabilities. 

The full-day session is run by the Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, a highly experienced trainer. The maximum number of delegates is 15 per session. To avoid disappointment, please book early.

 Since the workshop was launched in May 2013, five sessions have been held. 37 participants from 22 organisations have completed this workshop. This is what they say: 

“I learnt about the different perspectives that people with disabilities have through the group sharing session about possible solutions. Very beneficial”

“The interaction with different people from different organisations sharing their ideas and problems faced within their organisation”

“Love it that it was not a lecture-like workshop but rather a more interactive workshop”

“It exposed me to a number of perspectives that did not previously occur to me to consider”

“Loved the discussions – learnt lots from others”

“The session exposed me to various issues that disabled people in Singapore experience. It has allowed me to expand my scope of thinking and consider putting myself in the shoes of the disabled”

“Best workshop I’ve ever attended”
