TomoWork's A.B.L.E. Webinar Series

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.
