The theme of International Parity @Work Day 2018 is “The Silent Child.”
We are inviting you explore the impact of “The Silent Child” within each person that is not heard and understood – and how that limits each individual from contributing the value that could come from the essence of what makes him or her ‘different’ this International Parity @Work Day.
Our aim is to increase ability to understand and appreciate the value of difference, so that each of us and our organisations can benefit.
Our theme fo this year is inspired by the Oscar nominated short film “The Silent Child” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL2pL1ihob8 that highlights the challenges faced by a 4 year old girl who is profoundly deaf and born into a hearing family that has no education about deafness. It demonstrates in a moving and profound way the challenges faced by someone who is not heard and understood for their difference.
We would love to hear what new insights and what new #PledgeForParity commitments come out of your conversations throughout January.
