Although GainingEdge is a global firm, our work is focused at the national, regional and local level. We’re passionate about supporting the communities that we work in through volunteering, making charitable donations, partnering with non-profit organisations and NGOs, and more.
Improving Accessibility through a partnership with BestCities and Rehabilitation International
In 2018, we undertook a joint research project in collaboration with BestCities Global Alliance and Rehabilitation International with the aim of showcasing case studies and best practices in making meetings and conventions more inclusive for delegates with disabilities.
Our project goals are twofold:
Destinations around the world adopt accessibility practices on different levels, driven by their own policies and legal regulations. Adherence to codes is the minimal approach.
We want to encourage suppliers to go beyond minimal and be proactive even if it surpasses legal requirements. It is our intention that by reviewing and sharing best practices, there will be more awareness and more demand for accessibility by all participants.
