Twelve months on, while enforced isolation has started to give way to emotional reunions, face-to-face inclusivity must still remain 2 metres apart and warm, welcoming smiles must still remain cloaked under a protective canvass. As the world takes steady, socially distanced steps into a new normality of unknowns, we take a look at the role technology will play in helping everyone to live and work and learn and celebrate together, following months of being kept physically apart.
When the long days of distancing finally become little more than a distant memory, who knows what societal shifts will have been set in motion and what temporary lifestyle changes will have become permanent lifestyle choices. What is likely is that technology will be at the centre of our post pandemic future. A future where in-person and on-video events are likely to blend, combining everyone’s need for human interactions with the expansive benefits of bringing people together from around the world at the touch of a screen.
We will have to wait and see whether this future brings truly location neutral lifestyles and heralds the dawn of a truly inclusive world. A world where being in the room becomes indistinguishable from joining-in remotely. A workplace where meetings are called between those that are in the office and those that are elsewhere, without hesitation. A world-wide campus where the learned voices of knowledge speak to the inquiring minds of learning, whether they’re sitting in the lecture or sitting on their sofas.
Technology can give us a seamless, barrier less, boundary less future full of inclusive possibilities, where everyone is given the opportunity to express themselves, no matter where they are or how they choose to be defined. Technology enables us to open a digital window onto a wider world, where everyone from anywhere can discover the joys of new friendships by reaching out to welcome those from unfamiliar cultures and lifestyles.
Clevertouch are proud that our technologies have helped everyone to keep working, learning and sharing throughout this unique period of history. We will never stop listening, innovating and building the tools that enable everyone to continue communicating and collaborating from wherever and by however they choose, no matter what challenges the future may bring.
This is because inclusivity is in our DNA. Its why Clevertouch was invented over a decade ago. To help teachers nurture every young mind, emboldening the reticent to raise their arm. To help business leaders turn their teams into teams that work together, meeting the big challenges and inspiring the big ideas. Inclusivity is at the heart of Clevertouch, bringing people together to learn as one and work as one.
As the month of the rainbow draws to a close, Clevertouch is, as always, proud to be aligned with this eternal symbol of inclusivity.
A rainbow is a sight of beauty, naturally formed of many colours, each blended together yet each following its own path in harmonious equality. The inclusivity rainbow comprises an unlimited palette of vibrant colours that will continue to expand to represent our understanding and acceptance of the many differences that make each and every one of us who we are. This rainbow will forever shine proudly to symbolise that the future for humanity is brightest when we are at our respectful, tolerant and inclusive best.
