ATEN Vision for #VisionWeekNZ

Our vision for New Zealand to become the most accessible and disability inclusive country in the world.

The Accessibility Tick Employers’ Network is made up of 27 of New Zealand’s leading organisations committed to the inclusion of people with disabilities, chronic health conditions and facing mental health crises.

We have a vision of New Zealand becoming the most accessible and disability inclusive country in the world.

To achieve this, we need to inspire change.

  • We recognise and advocate that supporting a person with a disability is more than just getting them a job. It is empowering them to have a meaningful career.
  • If you want organisations to change their behaviours you to need to show them how the changes are beneficial, then support them to lead the changes themselves.
  • Practical programmes like the Accessibility Tick are essential to supporting organisation transformation.

We hope this video encourages people to think about accessibility and ask the same questions we did when creating our vision.

  • What could be done?
  • What should be done?
  • What must be done?
