The View of The Nation: Inclusion, universal access and design in the workplace and social space for people with disabilities in South Africa

View descriptionShare

Many organisations lack the knowledge, processes and physical facilities to effectively accommodate people with disabilities (PWD) to ensure that they feel included and able to make a meaningful contribution. Inclusion in the workplace has different dimensions; the absence of any one of them could lead to employees feeling marginalised. Crucially, the physical working environment (spatial layout, accessibility, equipment) must cater to disabled people’s needs – whether it is an access ramp for someone with limited mobility or is wheelchair-bound, adjusted acoustics for someone who is hearing impaired or a human or canine guide for someone who is blind. Universal Access Director at Oiler Orange & Grey Xolani Makwabe along with Jazz Pianist and Music Educator Yonela Mnana and Chairperson of the Association for the Physically Disabled Luthando Kekana join Lerato Mbele for the conversation.
