Disability Action Week coming this December

Disability Action Week is held annually and raises awareness of how Queenslanders can play a role in creating an all abilities Queensland.

The week acknowledges the important and varied contributions people living with disability make to our state. The week also aims to empower people with disability, raise awareness of disability issues, and improve access and inclusion throughout the wider community.

Businesses and employers are being encouraged to support workplace diversity and inclusion during Disability Action Week which is being celebrated from 5 to 11 December 2021. For the first time, Disability Action Week will align with the internationally observed International Day of People with Disability (3 December 2021) which is aimed at increasing public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability.

This year’s Disability Action Week theme ‘Workforce diversity – open up to opportunity’ focuses on employment opportunities for people with disability and the benefits of an inclusive workforce.
