2023 International Day of Persons with Disabilities
International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) is a United Nations-sanctioned day celebrated globally on December 3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities across all spheres of society. The theme for IDPD 2023 is "United in action to rescue and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for, with, and by persons with disabilities". In the realm of human resources, recognizing and celebrating IDPD holds immense significance and serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of inclusivity and diversity within the workplace.
In 2023, individuals and organizations can celebrate by pledging to honor, respect, and support disabled individuals in various ways. The day recognizes both visible and invisible disabilities, encouraging workplaces to foster an inclusive culture that embraces individuals regardless of their abilities. Past proclamations have emphasized recognizing and celebrating the equal rights and dignity of disabled people worldwide. Let's unite in celebrating IDPD to strengthen our commitment to inclusivity and diversity within our organization.
