The Enabler Program by Microsoft is a program to increase employability for people with disabilities (PwDs) in the Asia-Pacific region, by partnering with six non-profit organizations (NPOs) and 14 employers for the initial launch in five markets.
The program aims to pioneer disability-inclusive workplaces across the region by removing barriers for a more diverse workforce. Wipro has embarked on the program in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. At Wipro, inclusion has always been about integrating diversity effortlessly into everyday working, and celebrating diverse ideas and experiences at the workplace, guided and supported by our ‘Spirit of Wipro’ values.
We celebrate and learn from diverse ideas, backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. As a company, we’ve been committed to inclusive growth and the latest milestone in this journey has been our partnership with the Microsoft Enabler Program to drive inclusive hiring across Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. This first-of-its-kind initiative will specifically focus on improving accessibility and increasing employability of persons with disabilities (PwD).
Wipro has been hiring employees with disabilities for over a decade now. We’ve built a six-pronged approach for holistic growth of PwDs. These six pillars include:
In addition, we have several programs running to improve the overall I&D quotient at Wipro with initiatives focused on gender and ethnic diversity and our commitment to hiring local within the communities that we operate in. At Wipro, we place our talent above everything else to ensure that the best potential in any individual doesn’t go unrecognized.

I am excited about this inclusive culture we are building in ASEAN and globally, and look forward to your ideas and efforts to make this program a success.
