"Human Rights" is Our Right!

10 Aralık

By painting our world in orange as Ford Otosan, we have also participated in the 16-day activism which started with 25 November International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and came to an end with 10 December Human Rights Day.

Regardless of gender, religion, language, race, or difficulty; we invited everyone we could reach to be aware of this awareness; to announce our discourses against all kinds of both violence and inequality, with the awareness that painting the world orange is not solely sufficient.

We have created our Human Rights, Equality at Work, and Diversity policies in line with our cultural principles and values of our common culture Dynamic Balance; not only to be part of an important activism movement but to do the best we can for an equal future that is free from violence.

From equal opportunities in our recruitment processes to equal rights in peaceful working environments... We would like to live up to the fair future that we all desire and deserve with these policies, which serve as a roadmap for our inclusive and equal stance in a wide range for our colleagues.

Despite the fact that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been the most translated document in the world with more than 500 language translations since 10 December 1948, which was the date it was accepted in the international platform; it is really sad that after 72 years we are still talking about human rights, inequalities, violence and racism in our world.

This year, the United Nations; which included the people affected by the COVID-19 outbreak with the discourse of "Recover Better - Stand Up for Human Rights"; took on the duty to defend the human rights of everyone who were deprived of their rights due to the epidemic, who were excluded, exposed to inequality and discrimination.

We see this December 10 as an opportunity to emphasize once again the importance of human rights, one of the most fundamental elements to creating the equal world we desire.
