Disability and inclusion: an open door to a stronger organization

Including more persons with disabilities in the labor market provides both opportunities for professional development and for human growth.

“The first step is to be hired without any problem, that the employer is not afraid of doing that because you will not be a burden, but you have a contribution to make”.

David De Juan Calvo (Globant Spain)

“There are no doubts that persons with disabilities contribute to the workforce; they contribute diversity, knowledge. You create work teams that are more diverse, open and respectful of that diversity”.

Daniela Aza (Communicator)

Tips for creating more inclusive workspaces by the Globant LGBTQ+ community:

1

Visibilize and naturalize. Understand that there are different ways of seeing the world, of living life and that all of them are valid.

2

Create community. Create a space of containment for LGBTQ+ people and for those who want to be allies.

3

Use neutral terms and pronouns. Avoid addressing people in your work team assuming their sexual orientation or gender identity.

4

It starts with you! Make sure to foster tolerance and respect for diversity in order to create an inclusive space with your work team.

5

Implement inclusive policies. Make sure that the company’s diversity policies or Codes of Ethics include the LGBTQ+ community.

6

Make a public commitment towards the LGBTQ+ community. Try to have representation at corporate events and hiring policies towards the LGBTQ+ community.
