Yoocan is always striving to develop and implement exciting new ways to promote disability rights and expand the community.
There are 5 new milestones in the Yoocan community journey:
Yoocan is the number one global collaborative community for and by people with disabilities and their families. Through inspiring community stories (UGC) we spread love, know-how, learnings, and ideas with the world.
At Yoocan, we pride ourselves on building a strong community of people with disabilities, that is also based on recommendations and reviews of services and products. We have built a level of trust with our community.
This marks the first instance where we changed our model of promoting products and services, and we are allowing companies to place their own content on the site. We developed a quick and easy system for promoters to place ads on our site, in 3 prime locations. As a promoter, you are in charge of your content, ad cycle and can change and renew everything in 4 easy steps. You can learn more about it here.
Yoocan is now certified by Dun & Bradstreet as an Environmental, Social, and Governance impact company. This officially means that any of our patterns and brands that work with Yoocan are making an ESG impact and are part of the solution. Companies are therefore incentivized to improve their ESG performance and everybody wins. We are all working together to achieve greater representation and awareness, to bring more jobs to the community and this is an important step in the right direction.
Dun & Bradstreet's mission is to create a global network of trust enabling clients to turn uncertainty into confidence, risk into opportunity, and potential into prosperity. In a world where new methods of transacting business mean that trust must be continually verified, clients continue to rely on Live Business Identity, derived from the Data Cloud, to provide the most comprehensive and continually updated view of business entities. Ultimately removing more uncertainty from the decision-making process, removing more risk from the business. They are therefore a guarantee of authenticity and measurable impact.
Yoocan is partnering with UserWay and bringing its accessibility widget for users to be able to navigate the site easier. On top of that UserWay will share new developments and testimonials of their many users on how to make browsing and working on the computer simple and easy for people with disabilities.
The Zero Conference by Zero Project hosts global leaders and innovators who work tenaciously to better our world to "leave no one behind".
The Zero Project mission is working for a world with zero barriers. Worldwide, the Zero Project finds and shares solutions that improve the daily lives and legal rights of all persons with disabilities.
Yoocan is partnering up with Autism Parenting Magazine and one of our first joint promotions is the start of the Autism Parenting Summit.
The Autism Summit is the perfect extension of Yoocan's platform, which is sharing stories, experiences, and best practices.
The Summit provides sessions on:
✅ Challenging Behaviors
✅ Speech and Language
✅ Special Education
✅ Occupational Therapy
✅ Transitioning to adulthood
✅ Diet and Nutrition
✅ Sensory Solutions
✅ Autism Advocacy
✅ Financial planning
✅ Autism safety
All of this and more is the focus of the excellent work Autism Parenting Magazine is doing. We will have many more events and joint actions, as we have already successfully collaborated on bringing the Autism Summit to everyone in the Yoocan community.
