    What Our Corporate Partners Say About Us!

    BIG THANKS to GiftAbled team…. With your help we have embarked on the journey to embrace People with Disabilities into our organisation. The sensitisation training was attended by more than 200 plus people managers today and am still getting goosebumps seeing the responses from them. They just loved it and learnt from it. As always your energy was very infectious and left us wanting more!!!

    It was definitely Awesome. Everyone were so engaged. I have not seen such active participation in such a large group. I have started getting messages from people enquiring about this initiative…. Thanks a lot Prarthana. We will start engaging with GiftAbled for hiring. Thank you. Will have more and more engagement with team GiftAbled.

    It was great to be on the session. Quite engaging, loved the energy you displayed and you drove from the participants. The relatable stories you shared conveyed the message well and simplified the learning. Sometimes these sessions create toll on emotions but with your facilitation style, you drove the point, helped balance between emotions and the reality… Thank you team GiftAbled.

    Thank You for spending this morning with us at LinkedIn and helping us with rethinking some of the beliefs we had with PwD. It was indeed a great learning experience for all of us and will only strengthen our commitment on Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging. We have already received some great feedback on the workshop from our team members and I am sure we are very well placed on being more mindful of some the facts shared in the workshop. Thank you again for the great workshop. We hope to see you all again soon. 

    There are many memorable experiences in one’s life that stay in their minds long after the event has passed and there are a precious few that go beyond and touches your core, teaches you life lessons and leaves a lasting impact on you in the process. The workshop checked all these boxes for me. Wanted to therefore thank you for the learning that I took away and the impact it had on me.

    I can’t express how privileged are we to have you mentor us. The training was phenomenal and we are still getting rave reviews on it. The sensitisation has started and will build on it now… Thank you.
