  • What does the word ‘inclusion’ really mean to us? - IASE – Irish Association of Supported Employment
    bandied about so often it s come to not mean very much at all Here in the IASE we re certainly guilty of using the word again and again and again and again and again In fact our slogan for our annual national day of awareness Job Shadow Day is Working for Inclusion But what do we really mean we use that work and why is it so important to us The Oxford Dictionary of English defines inclusion as the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure a person or thing that is included within a whole When we talk about inclusion here at the IASE we use it in the context of the inclusion of people with disabilities in Irish society If we use the dictionary definition of inclusion a person included within a whole society is the whole and all of us each individual is the person to be included within that society As human beings individually we can t really do much outside of our societies We have to be a part of our societies to carry out all of the things that make us human We are born learn grow are educated develop relationships make decisions exchange ideas buy and sell make and break build and develop do right and do wrong create and express all through the way in which we interact with others the way in which we belong in our society Our fundamental human rights enshrined in 30 articles in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights UNDHR make it possible for us all to carry out our human activities freely and equally within our society Those rights include the right to live free from discrimination the right to feel safe the right to dignity and integrity the right to free speech and so forth Importantly for us at the IASE Article 23 states Everyone has the right to work to free choice of employment to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment Everyone without any discrimination has the right to equal pay for equal work Without this fundamental human right we may be limited in the way we fully express ourselves as human beings For a range of reasons from societal attitudes to availability of services to employer perception economic and physical barriers people with disabilities can and do find it difficult to access the workplace According to the latest Central Statistics Office CSO figures the one in 10 of us who experience disability are just half as likely to be employed as the rest of the general working age population This is putting a fundamental human right at risk for a significant percentage of the population Any individual who wants to access the workplace should be on an equal footing with their fellow members of society when it comes to going out and trying to get it And that s what supported employment is all about According to Eithne Jarrett
