Inclusivity & respect

APAE - Associação de Pais e Amigos dos Excepcionais

Main aim of the charity

APAE - Associação de Pais e Amigos dos Excepcionais was born in 1954, in Rio de Janeiro. It is characterized by being a social organization, whose main objective is to promote comprehensive care for people with disabilities, primarily those with intellectual and multiple disabilities. APAE stands out for its pioneering spirit and capillarity, currently being present in more than 2,200 cities throughout the Brazil’s territory.

How the employee got involved and why

Since the end of 2021, we have partnered with the institution because we believe that a great place to work for must be inclusive for everyone. With that, we have to create this awareness in Our People and make them understand what the needs of people with disabilities are and how they can help. Working with APAE makes us achieve our goal. It's more than listening to difficulties, it's making our employees allies and creating an inclusive company.

What work does the employee do for charity

Engagement actions aimed at Diversity & Inclusion (for example, GVD 2022 and internal projects) in partnership with APAE, which help employees to become allies of the cause, in addition to understanding the needs of people with disabilities, creating a company more inclusive and diverse.
