A total of 35 representatives from the recruiting and human resources areas of 16 companies completed the course “Mexican Sign Language: Basic I”, taught by the Institute for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities of the State (Iipedey), in coordination with the Yucatán T-Incluye initiative.

In the eighth and final session of the workshop, which lasted a total of 20 hours, the general director of Iipedey, María Teresa Vázquez Baqueiro, highlighted the commitment of the participating companies to strengthen the inclusion of people with disabilities in their processes of attracting talent.

“Achieving full labor inclusion requires concrete actions, and one of them is to professionalize those who carry out recruitment within companies,” he assured.

Vázquez Baqueiro said that it is essential that those who conduct job interviews are familiar with concepts such as types of disabilities and how to appropriately interact with them.

He emphasized that actions such as the Mexican Sign Language (LSM) course are firm steps towards true inclusion, with the aim of more companies looking at the talent and skills that people with disabilities can offer.

In her speech, Kekén’s Social Responsibility Manager, Sara Arribas Pinero, representing the Yucatán T-Incluye initiative, celebrated the participation of the attendees for investing part of their workday in training on such an important topic for the people with hearing disabilities such as the LSM.

Arribas Pinero pointed out that the Yucatán T-Incluye initiative began three years ago with only two companies that sought to share experiences and knowledge regarding the labor inclusion of people with disabilities. To date, he added, the initiative has grown to 30 organizations that work towards a common goal that generates employment for more than 500 people living with this condition.

For his part, the certified interpreter and course instructor, Alvar Adrián May Can, emphasized the importance of continuing to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion.

“Today, disability is no longer seen as a deficiency, but as part of the differences that enrich us as a society,” he stated. “If a person does not walk or listen, it is part of their particular life condition and we must respect it and create the conditions so that they can fully participate in society.”

May Can pointed out that the culture of inclusion also involves learning LSM, knowing how to treat people with disabilities, and breaking down communication barriers that may exist. All this, while applauding the fact that more and more companies hire people with disabilities and care about improving their processes and accessibility conditions. The course was held during May and at the Coparmex Mérida facilities and included the participation of staff from Bachoco, Bepensa, Bodega Aurrerá, Cedis Walmart, Galletas Dondé, GEPP, Grupo Libera, Hielos Heredia, Hospital Christus Mugerza Faro del Mayab, Kekén, La Anita, Netlogistik, Panificadora El Retorno, Polpusa, Steren, and Súper Willys.
