Disability ≠ Disabled

We envision a society that values people for their differences. 

We work towards empowering persons with disabilities in the workplace by promoting the inclusive mindset for employers, improving the self-confidence of PWDs as well as creating more inclusive spaces.

What are we doing?

Diversity in the corporate environment is important but leveraging that power has its challenges. TomoWork aims to demonstrate how we can empower people with disabilities (PWDs) and foster inclusion in the workplace. This groundbreaking initiative will bring together PWDs, Employers and a wide range of stakeholders during this curated two-week program. We welcome all who are interested in the power of diversity to join us in September!

Meaning behind ‘TomoWork’

Tomo means ‘friends’ in Japanese. Accordingly, TomoWork aims to represent the strong friendship and great partnership between the two countries of Singapore and Japan. 

The objective of this concept is to work together both as a team and friends to achieve the objectives of creating an effective and inclusive workplace environment for persons with disability (PWDs). 

TomoWork also has a hidden meaning, whereby the name resembles its relationship with Masatomo Sumitomo, the founder of Sumitomo Life Insurance, the lead organizer of TomoWork. 

This is our story of TomoWork.
