Through various hands-on activities and art classes, we make art appreciation more accessible to everyone, including the visually-impaired. In Thailand, we have run the Please Touch programme since 2015. This art-beyond-sight initiative aims to inspire people with visual impairments to show that there are no boundaries to pursue art as career and also serves as a platform to share their works with others.
UOB has been a proud supporter of The Purple Parade since 2015. The Purple Parade is Singapore’s largest movement to advocate for inclusive societies by celebrating the abilities of persons with special needs. Every year during The Purple Parade, our colleagues come dressed in purple to show our solidarity in championing social inclusion.
In 2021, we launched ‘The Unlimited’ - the first inclusive hiring collaboration among the public, private and people sectors in Singapore to promote sustainable employment for persons with disabilities.
Under the initiative, UOB acts as the private sector catalyst for inclusive hiring, engaging companies to raise their awareness of and to generate interest in the hiring of persons with disabilities.
