Building an all-inclusive society through technology would require a lot of innovation matched with the relevant skill to do so.
It has to be done bearing in all manner of people with different form of abilities and disabilities alike with utmost demonstration of mutual respect for all, to be able to freely engage and integrate them, by giving all a sense of inclusivity in the larger society.
“An inclusive society is only possible when all human beings are given a sense of belonging in a world full of inequality, injustice and deprivation. A world where those with some form of deformity feel left out in the scheme of things because of the mental or physical state they have found themselves. Today the story is changing as a result of the advancement in modern technology, which is helping to create an inclusive society like never before, where all human beings can proudly call their own and participate actively in contributing to the advancement and development of human race.”

For instance LG has continued to recognize the challenges faced by physically challenged persons in the society, thereby creating a platform suitable to help them actualize their various dreams of acquiring knowledge to live a more fulfilling life.
“We have done this by providing a platform for people with disabilities to build a career with the aid of technology, which would no doubt help to improve the quality lives all over the world. The evolution of technology has reached a point where anything is available at the touch of a button with greater innovation.”
