Observed each year on 03 December. Hashtags #IDPWD #IDPWD2021.
Mvine Limited today marks the International Day of Persons with Disability. The move aligns with the company’s practice and ethos for making greater advances in digital design for people with cognitive or physical disability.
The annual observance on 03 December of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
Frank Joshi, director at Mvine, said: “For me, there is something important in the observance of days such as International Day of Persons with Disabilities. No gimmicks. Just an annual reminder that people with disabilities are not a niche market, they are mainstream. There should be no ‘us and them’. We are one.”
On 15 July, Mvine attended ‘The Hidden Segment: the World’s Disabled Billion’ webinar, organised by Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF). The webinar was delivered by Chris Lewis, founder of Lewis Insight, the highly regarded and experienced analyst.
Mvine is becoming known for its ongoing work in architecting Assistive Technologies which assure further and greater levels of inclusion among people of all ages and abilities.
“Mvine holds regular discussions with sector experts at leading charities such as Leonard Cheshire, as well as with entrepreneurial businesses such as easyTravelseat and Open Inclusion. Mvine’s collaboration with these organisations, each a specialist in their respective area, informs overall better understanding of the needs of people with disability and this is shown in better user experience and user interface design in Mvine’s digital products,” said Frank Joshi.
