Celebrating International Day of People with Disability

Through the International Day of People with Disability, the global community unites to recognise the achievements and challenges faced by individuals with disabilities. This celebration promotes inclusivity and raises awareness about the importance of creating accessible and equitable societies. The day is an opportunity for us all to consider how we can promote equal opportunities and embrace diversity. 

This year the University of Sydney Library has joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Initiative, which presents a strong symbol of support and awareness for individuals who may have unseen challenges. Individuals and groups worldwide embrace the initiative, fostering inclusivity by recognising hidden disabilities. This simple yet powerful gesture promotes understanding and encourages a more compassionate and accessible environment for all.
