Fellow Since 2018

With Blindspot, Jonas is creating a culture of inclusion of people with disabilities by showing inclusion for what it ultimately is – an easy, natural process that everyone can engage in. Blindspot is the first organization of its kind in Switzerland. Having started its work by bringing children with and without disabilities together through sport, Blindspot is now positioned as a leader in the field and innovating several new efforts to reach beyond children to drive a broader societal shift toward a culture of inclusion.

This description of Jonas Staub's work was prepared when Jonas Staub was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Introduction
“With its inclusive projects in the fields of work, leisure and education, Blindspot - inlcusion and diversity Switzerland - empowers people with and without disabilities and with a social impairment to participate actively and self-sufficient in everyday life. Blindspot aims to change existing structures and ways of doing, working in partnership with institutions at a local, regional and national level, such as the Swiss Federal Office for Sports, motivating them to adopt an inclusive approach in their work. Jonas' vision is a society where inclusion is lived implicitly in every setting.”
