Singapore, 29th September 2021 – Following the very successful run of a digital talent accelerator programme earlier this year, Sumitomo Life Insurance (Sumitomo Life) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP) have now opened the programme to persons with disabilities (PWDs) from all local polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), across all academic years. From physical and sensory disabilities, to autism spectrum disorder and learning disabilities, this revamped programme has attracted 60 participants!

Called the Talent Explorer Programme (TEP), the programme provides opportunities for PWD to explore jobs and careers in high-demand sectors beyond their areas of study. They acquire hands-on, practical skills, engage in conversations with industry professionals, and learn the fundamentals of relevant job skills required in high-demand sectors in Singapore.

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.
