“In diversity, there is beauty and there is strength.” – Maya Angelou
Join us for an afternoon dedicated to a special sharing from independent voices on 'Transforming Attitudes Towards Disabilities' in Singapore!
TA>D for short, is our pioneering ground-up open platform to propel the inclusion agenda forward, through collaborative solutioning and social design. We seek to bridge gaps, amplify successes, and unite partners with a shared commitment towards meeting the needs of the disability sector.
Featuring dynamic speakers and panelists, TA>D welcomes everyone: individuals with or without disabilities, schools, community groups, corporates, and government agencies.
Experience a collection of extraordinary, straight-from-the-heart stories that reaffirm the vibrancy of humanity in Singapore. Get ready for an “Inverse Stomp” as we showcase brief, impactful experiences embodying unity and inclusivity.
