The International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which took place on 3 December, has been the occasion for the French Office for Immigration and Integration (OFII) to commit to the inclusion of persons with disabilities.
Celebrated each year since 1992 at the initiative of the United Nations (UN), the International Day of Persons with Disabilities aims at promoting the understanding on disability issues and at mobilising the support for the dignity, rights, and well-being of persons with disabilities.
The theme chosen for this 29th edition is “Leadership and participation of persons with disabilities toward an inclusive, accessible, and sustainable post-COVID-19 world”.
The OFII mobilised on the issue of disability and accessibility.
The OFII is fully involved in this international mobilisation and is committed towards better accessibility to information on its role, its missions and its schemes destined to users. The OFII also supports initiatives for an inclusive working environment, accessible on the long run for its teams and every agent with a disability.
An inclusive and accessible OFII means:
– A 100% accessible website
Our website www.ofii.fr is now 100% in compliance with the French General Database for the Improvement of Accessibility (RGAA). This website was developed with the ambition of making it accessible to everyone with a disability. Thus, any web user can access the whole content of the website without their physical or cognitive disabilities being an obstacle.
– A Disability Referent
The missions of the Disability Referent within OFII: reassuring, accompanying, and informing persons with disabilities on their rights relating to their status. This reflects our will to guarantee a positive and inclusive working environment for people with disabilities, to promote their professional integration and employment.
– A commitment towards inclusion and equality
These various OFII initiatives for people with disabilities are part of the fight against every form of exclusion or discrimination and raising awareness of the need to take better account of all disabilities.
