Inclusion in everyday life and work

Dear Sir or Madam,

We often report on the topic of accessibility in very different situations of life. Unfortunately, this is exactly what is missing everywhere in everyday life. But this is especially annoying when shopping, because at least the grocery shopping has to be done (almost) always in the supermarket around the corner. You can read in our Topic of the Month whether this might change soon.

Perhaps society would be more inclusive if people with disabilities were also in decision-making positions. The team of the DisAbility Talent program tries to make this possible one day. We asked them how they want to achieve that.

Have an accessible week,

Anne Hofmann
Editorial team
