International Day Of People With Disability
It’s that time of year again. There’s a distinctly nutmeg-y smell wafting from bakeries, and supermarket songs are featuring jingling bells and Mariah Carey. Yep, it’s come around again: International Day of People with Disabilities.
For the past 20 years, 3 December has marked this International Day to promote understanding of people with disabilities, and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
On one hand, its timing is slightly awkward – people’s schedules are filled with Christmas parties and holiday plans, and work is either winding down or revving up depending on how far behind you are on your yearly KPIs. For those of us who wish to mark the day and raise awareness of disability issues, the competition for people’s attention is high.
