TomoWork's Talent Accelerator Programme
TomoWork encourages employers to leverage on diversity in the workplace & empowers persons with disabilities (PWDs) to achieve gainful employment.
Through a 11-week Talent Accelerator Programme, currently unemployed PWDs gain better understanding of their talents & abilities to secure better job opportunities.
*The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has limited our ability to introduce our community with employment opportunities.
Our third accelerator will happen from 15 March 2021 to 28 May 2021, in collaboration with Temasek Polytechnic. If you are looking to be a participant, corporate partner or mentor, click below to find out more!
At TomoWork, we believe that Abilities, Belonging, Leadership, Empowerment (A.B.L.E) are the key success factors in achieving the goal of an inclusive workplace. We embarked on the TomoWork A.B.L.E. Webinar series at the height of COVID-19, when we were seeking stability in a time of uncertainty. We felt that this was a crucial time to foreground the importance of Diversity & Inclusion by opening up a dialogue on how Persons with Disabilities & Corporates can work in tandem to build inclusive ecosystems.
Going forward, we want to ensure that we uplift everyone as we recover, rebuild, and reach new heights.

The Power of Building an Inclusive Brand & Empowering the Differently Abled Community
Time: 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm (GMT +8)
Co-hosted with Facebook, our upcoming & final webinar will explore how brands can actively consider removing barriers & create better brand experiences for all. Brands are powerful. They can significantly raise awareness & interests of critical societal issues like health, safety, environment, diversity & inclusivity. They could even create life-changing customer experiences through unique products and services catered to underserved populations. One such underserved group is a segment with one billion people globally – the disabled people.
For most of us, our everyday activities like getting necessities, commuting to school or work, enjoying entertainment, are on ‘autopilot,’ so to speak. But that is not the case for people with disabilities. These communities are disabled by the society we live in, by default. As Sarah Newton MP, Minister for Disabled People, Health & Work of the United Kingdom (2017-2019) said: “Brands have the power to change the way that society thinks about disability. By collaborating with disabled people, by considering their needs in your product design, and by reflecting their lives in your campaigns, you have the power to make sure that no disabled consumer is left behind.”
TomoWork is an initiative built on empowering Persons with Disabilities in the workplace by encouraging companies to embrace diversity & promote inclusive employment. Led by Sumitomo Life Insurance, a leading Japanese insurer, in collaboration with Hide & Seek, a local social enterprise & member of raiSE.
