Disability Pride Month 2022 is here!

Disability Pride Month is a yearly event in July that increases awareness of disability as an identity, how it affects people and the community, as well as the pride that disabled people have and can bring.

This blog post will explain what Disability Pride Month is and why it is so important to us here at O’Brien Media!

Why is it so important to O'Brien Media?

Having been a Disability Confident Leader since August 2021, we ensure we champion disability in the local community. Having team members that have disabilities is something that is important to us, and we aim to educate others through partaking in the ‘Disability Confident’ Scheme.

What our team think?

“As someone who is disabled myself, working for an organisation that promotes disability confidence and events such as Disability Pride Month, really makes me feel valued as an individual.”

About the Disability Confident Scheme?

The ‘Disability Confident’ government scheme “supports employers like you to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace”

Disability Confident is creating a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled people.

Being Disability Confident is a unique opportunity to lead the way in your community, and you might just discover someone your business cannot do without.

It was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives to make it rigorous but easily accessible, particularly for smaller businesses.

We are very proud of our Leader status here at O’Brien Media!

If you are a business, we highly encourage you to join the scheme so that we can all ensure that the working world is fair for all regardless of someone’s particular needs!

You can find more details out about the scheme here.
