GADIM partners with Shutterstock, WID to create
Authentic Portrayals of People with Disabilities Guide
In 2022, GADIM partnered with the international stock photography company, Shutterstock, and the World Institute on Disability (WID) to create Shutterstock’s Authentic Portrayals of People with Disabilities Guide.
The Guide instructs content creators on how to prevent negative stereotypes of people with disabilities by authentically showcasing the diversity of their identities and experiences. In addition, the Guide explains writing inclusive and accessible descriptions of visual content.
This collaboration between GADIM, WID, and Shutterstock aims to build more authentic representations of disability in all Shutterstock content across a broad range of environments, relationships, and issues.
