What is Accessibility to Me Week?

Get ready for an inspiring week of empowerment and transformation with Accessibility to Me Week (ATMW), brought to you by Recite Me! This yearly initiative is all about raising the bar for accessibility and inclusion in every aspect of our lives, especially in our workplaces.

When you hear the word “accessibility” in the workplace, what comes to mind? You might think of a colleague who uses a wheelchair navigating office spaces or an employee with visual impairments using assistive technology to interact with computer systems. Accessibility encompasses both of these scenarios and much more. It’s about creating work environments, both physical and digital, that are inclusive and usable by everyone, regardless of their abilities or circumstances.

By recognising differences in what accessibility means to a diverse range of people, together we can make a difference. 

This Year's Theme - A Workplace for Everyone

Our 2024 campaign, “A Workplace for Everyone,” is set to spotlight the crucial role of inclusive recruitment and the creation of truly accessible work environments. Join us as we champion a future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive!

Throughout the week we are highlighting how embracing diverse talent can drive innovation, enhance communication strategies, and strengthen connections with customers, staff, and stakeholders.

During Accessibility to Me Week 2024, we invite you to share your experiences and thoughts on attracting diverse talent, inclusive workplaces and the benefits this has on everyone.
