Declaraţia de presă ăn original:

Fairfax, VA:  The World Information Technology and Services Alliances (WITSA) and inclusite®, signed today a Memorandum of Understanding to drive awareness and collaboration on Inclusite’s innovative technology solution and the importance of digital inclusion in achieving a Universal Connectivity and Fulfilling the Promise of the Digital Age for all people, regardless of age, ability or socioeconomic status.

This collaboration aims to enable and broaden the participation of the entire workforce in the Digital Economy while increasing business opportunities, global integration, personalized experiences, autonomy and empowerment for people with all abilities.

“As a leading voice of the global ICT industry, WITSA vision is to “Fulfil the Promise of the Digital Age” for everyone”, said WITSA’s Secretary General Dr. Jim Poisant.  “ICT is positively impacting nearly every aspect of human life. Yet, billions of individuals around the globe are not receiving the benefits of enabling solutions such as inclusite®.  As an industry, it is our responsibility to put in place the right conditions and solutions to ensure that everyone will have an opportunity to benefit from Digital Age, thus contributing to WITSA’s vision”, continued Dr. Poisant.

“WITSA is extremely pleased to partner with inclusite® in promoting digital inclusion in our industry and throughout society”, stated Ms Yvonne Chiu, WITSA’s chairman. “As a winner of the 2017 WITSA Emerging Digital Solutions Award (WEDS), inclusite® has demonstrated that its solutions, products and services have generated global recognition and delivered positive outcomes in the Digital Inclusion market place”, continued Ms Chiu. “Inclusite’s approach to Universal Connectivity is forward thinking, progressive and distinguishes itself from similar businesses in the digital inclusion industry space”.

“inclusite® has generated global recognition and delivered positive outcomes in the Accessibility industry.”, said Albert J. Rizzi, M.Ed., Founder and CEO of My Blind Spot. “inclusite® is committed to providing digital solutions that support the needs of the disability community, guiding their clients in making ICT infrastructures, including websites and mobile apps, usable and functional for all people.  The steps they take to ensure accessible digital platforms is the socially conscious thing to do, but equally important, the right thing to do for business.”

“Inclusite’s solution strives for moving beyond compliance and to focus on meaningful user experience”, said Frances West, founder of FrancesWestCo and former Chief Accessibility Officer of IBM.  “Its innovative approach of using new technologies such as Cloud computing and Artificial Intelligence allows them to enable access with minimum IT engagement or resources and to scale up enterprise-wide implementation with maximum impact”.

“We live in a digital era in constant transformation enabled by innovative technologies, different needs and experiences”, said inclusite® Vice President, Fernando Pardeiro. inclusite® is the bridge in the Digital Divide and thus impacting the bottom line by generating new jobs, Digital Education, Economic Growth, Social Impact and Universal Digital Access.

WITSA Announces Policy Recommendations to Narrow the Gap in Employment for Persons with Disabilities

WITSA Announces Policy Recommendations to Narrow the Gap in Employment for Persons with Disabilities Fairfax, VA: The World Information Technology and Services Alliance today published a statement of policy entitled “ICT Leadership in Inclusive Employment of Persons with Disabilities: An Economic and Social Imperative”. The paper was developed in cooperation with SourceAmerica® – a Vienna, Virginia based non-profit organization that is a leading U.S. source of job opportunities for people with significant disabilities. In keeping with WITSA’s mission to be the leader in Fulfilling the Promise of the Digital Age for everyone, this paper and accompanying policy recommendations address the social and economic imperatives of employment of persons with disabilities and lay out a roadmap for the ICT industry to grow as leaders in supporting the employment of persons with disabilities.

Of the 7.8 billion people worldwide, nearly 1 in 6 are persons with disabilities, a group disproportionately underrepresented in the economy. Worldwide, persons with disabilities face barriers to economic and social participation, including employment. Advancements in accessible and assistive technologies are critical and must expand to cover the broad diversity of disability. Economically, it is estimated that countries forego up to 7 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) due to the exclusion of persons with disabilities. Employing persons with disabilities represents a significant return on investment for industry.

“Companies that actively hire individuals with disabilities position themselves to engage a diverse talent pool and reach a larger market by developing products and services for a growing segment of the population,” stated WITSA Secretary General Dr. Jim Poisant. “The ICT industry has an opportunity to take a leadership role in increasing the employment of people with disabilities in the ICT industry, setting an example that could catalyze other sectors to include persons with disabilities, encouraging large-scale economic and societal benefit across the world.”

“At SourceAmerica, we view this as an important and promising first step toward creating an Inclusion Economy – one where people of all abilities have a choice of careers and are celebrated for their unique and valuable contributions to the workforce”, said Steven Krotonsky, Chief Operating Officer for SourceAmerica. “With these policy recommendations in hand, now is the time to move forward together to bring about real change. This change isn’t just about creating new jobs; it’s about creating meaningful, long-term careers for people with disabilities, and we look forward to continuing our work with WITSA toward this important goal.”

“Having been at the intersection of technology and human rights throughout my career, I have witnessed the transformative power of innovation,” remarked H.E. Ambassador Luis Gallegos Chiriboga. “But accessible products and services are not enough. They must serve as a bridge to inclusion in the workforce. Only then can we confront longstanding economic and social inequalities experienced by persons with disabilities.”

Advancements in technology are insufficient by themselves to bridge socioeconomic marginalization experienced by persons with disabilities worldwide. In fact, technological innovations alone have the potential to widen the digital, economic and social divide between persons with and without disabilities. As discussions take place on how to increase access to ICT worldwide, WITSA therefore supports a strategic focus on actionable outcomes that narrow the gap in employment for persons with disabilities. The policy interventions outlined in the paper are intended to achieve the desired outcomes by supporting greater access to employment opportunities, technology, education, and workforce development.

WITSA combate falsele concepții și amenințările la adresa Sistemului Multilateral de Comerț (WITSA Challenges Misconceptions and Threats to the Multilateral Trading System) 

 

În calitate de unic reprezentant pentru România, ATIC vă informează ca World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA) a lansat o nouă declarație politică intitulată “Globalizarea: Percepție vs. Realitate: De ce opoziția față de comerțul internațional și frontierele deschise este nepotrivită, contraproductivă și dăunătoare securității și prosperității noastre viitoare”.

WITSA Challenges Misconceptions and Threats to the Multilateral Trading System

Fairfax, VA: The World Information Technology and Services today published a statement of policy entitled “Globalization: Perception vs. Reality: Why Opposition to International Trade and Open Borders is Misplaced, Counter-Productive and Harmful to our Future Security and Prosperity”. The paper addresses some of the most worrisome misconceptions and threats to the multilateral trading system that has served the ICT industry as well as all other industries, citizens and consumers so well in modern times.

While anti-globalization forces are not new nor necessarily ICT specific, WITSA feels compelled to challenge them as the recent mushrooming of nativist populist leaders, including in certain key markets, are now engaging in dangerous rhetoric and implementing destructive policies that go well beyond discussions over protectionism or even past concerns over labor and environmental standards, and which -if unchecked- can have long-term detrimental implications for our current, rules-based international order as well as for the future and prosperity of our children and future generations.

Globalization has proved to work for most people and has improved countless lives. If this case isn’t made and voiced in strong terms, the case for protectionism and nationalism remain as potent and dangerous as it has been for the past centuries. This paper attempts to debunk some the main misinformation and misconceptions that are all too often presented as “facts” and identifies several recommended actions and policy principles which WITSA believes can rekindle our faith and trust in international collaboration and trade, as an acknowledgement of our mutually shared interests, interdependencies, values and economic wellbeing.

“In this new era of multi-speed globalization, the strategic challenge for governments and industry in the years ahead will be to navigate a world that is simultaneously integrating and fragmenting”, stated WITSA Secretary General Dr. Jim Poisant. “WITSA recognizes that globalization is a force for good, but we all share a burden and a responsibility to better address the concerns and plight of those left behind through a concerted effort towards more sustainable governance of the global economy. The truth is, a trading system is sustainable only if everyone shares in the benefits. Therefore, we must ensure that trade is more inclusive and helps support sustainable development.”

By getting at the root causes of the discontent, perceived or real, WITSA believes progress and recovery is attainable, if not inevitable. Markets, countries and people are simply too well-connected. Protectionism is a dead end, and ultimately tends to impoverish those who practice it. Policy makers share a responsibility to take citizens’ concerns seriously and need to develop solutions that help reduce inequality, restore a greater sense of security, and improve upward economic and social mobility. Policy-makers must protect and maintain global openness while striving for inclusive growth that meets real human needs.

The statement, which features a number of policy principles which can rekindle faith and trust in international collaboration and trade, can be found on the WITSA web site at the following link:
