In 2002, my son was born prematurely and was later diagnosed as profoundly deaf. I quickly became acutely aware of the challenges and barriers he might face later in life. I wanted to understand more about what Arcadis does to support those with disabilities and this was my main motivation for joining the Disability Workstream.
I was amazed, not only at the range of people with disabilities at Arcadis but the successful careers that they have had. It’s made me proud to know that I work for a company that supports disabled people.
My son may never work for Arcadis; but by leading the way as an inclusive employer, it’s filled me with confidence that he will be able to have a successful career in the future.
