Yay! It's Monday With TomoWork!
In May 2020, TomoWork presented our first inclusive virtual engagement activity “Yay! It’s Monday with TomoWork!” for members & partners. The COVID-19 outbreak limited our ability to present physical events but during the Circuit Breaker period in Singapore, the TomoWork team saw an opportunity to help our community build new habits that benefit the future of work & strengthen personal resilience. We hosted 20 players with & without disabilities over a week to complete a series of tasks focused on personal & professional development, inclusive entertainment & wellness. We were heartened to see strong participation & to hear how this activity helped start the week on the right note.
Our special guests also offered strong words of encouragement. They urged our TomoWork members to stay connected, remain positive & embrace constant learning & development during these challenging times.
TomoWorkSG is founded on the philosophy of empowering People with Disabilities & contributing towards their gainful employment. The support of our partners has been invaluable in extending meaningful opportunities to develop our TomoWork members, both through learning sessions & exciting corporate projects. By doing so, employers would be able to recognise the true capabilities of PWDs.

"We are constantly inspired by the creative ways that TomoWork is bringing communities together to push the boundaries for people with disabilities."
An initiative launched in Singapore in September 2019, TomoWork was initially a two-week pilot to design a co-working space accessible for persons with disabilities. During this time, we worked with 15 persons with disabilities to develop a greater understanding of the disability landscape in Singapore, including the challenges seeking gainful employment. See what we got up to!
