Pictet invited Trust-to-Achieve (TTA) to facilitate an awareness-raising event concerning the benefits of hiring Visually Impaired People (VIPs).
During this interactive event, TTA President, Amaury Marchandise, presented the association’s goals, objectives, and activities. Trust-to-achieve is a non-profit organization committed to enabling VIPs who aspire to meaningful work and wish to integrate a wide range of professions (www.trust-to-achieve.com).
The spotlight was then cast on four VIPs and their stories: Thibault Trancart, Ali Yusuf, Saliou Sangare, and Céline Witschard. Their narratives showed how important determination, hard work, and a positive mindset are to overcoming most challenges, and showcased the diversity in skills and types of professions to which VIP can aspire.
Finally, TTA Board Member, Dr. Tanja Wranik, presented the business case for VIP integration and how to harness diversity and inclusion as a catalyst for strategic organizational development. The main message was that diversity and inclusion can be beneficial for the hiring organization and the persons being integrated with competency-based management practices and professional advisory.
At the end of the event, informal discussions and interactions allowed Pictet participants to interact with TTA and the showcased VIPs to discover how IT tools and support can facilitate and enhance collaboration and teamwork.
We thank Pictet for inviting us to this interactive event and hope we can inspire others to explore the business case for integrating VIPs into their organization.
