Celebrating International Day of People with Disability 2020 copy

2 Dec, 2020

International Day of People with Disability is an important day on Scope Global’s calendar. Every year on 3 December, we mark the day by raising awareness and celebrating the achievements and contributions that people with disability bring to our workplace, our programs and communities.

In 2020, we are celebrating with events across our programs and country offices.

We have also collated a series of stories that illustrate how we are working with people with disability across the Indo-Pacific region to remove barriers to inclusion and prioritise access for all.


At Scope Global, we are committed to enabling access and inclusion for all people, including people with disability. 

Through listening to and working closely with people with disabilities, we actively seek to remove barriers to inclusion in everything that we do. 

Our in-house team of disability inclusion experts - our Mavens - represent a diverse range of disabilities and bring their lived experiences of creating solutions to overcoming daily barriers. 

Meet our disability inclusion experts.
