Born Free, Born Equal: Stand Up for Human Rights! | Teleperformance
Born Free, Born Equal

Today is December 10, a day that marks a historic event: the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The declaration was a milestone, as it proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status.

Since its inception, the declaration has inspired a global movement, all united in empowering humanity and highlighting its importance in our daily lives. The declaration became the basis of common standards for people in every nation, and to this day, it continues to provide details about basic civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights that all human beings should enjoy. The declaration’s principles have inspired perseverance and human dignity as we all continue to strive for a world powered by equality and justice.

Now on its 71st anniversary, the United Nations is once again encouraging us all to stand up for equality, justice, and human dignity. Every year, it gets more challenging, as we continue to live in a world where there is hostility towards society. Teleperformance, a signatory of the United Nations’ Global Compact since 2011, encourages everyone to #StandUp4HumanRights: let us celebrate and value our rights to freedom and equality, and acknowledge those who bravely defend the cause around the world. From the United Nations’ website:

  • The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all.
  • Human rights are relevant to all of us, every day.
  • Our shared humanity is rooted in these universal values.
  • Equality, justice, and freedom prevent violence and sustain peace.
  • Whenever and wherever humanity’s values are abandoned, we all are at greater risk.
  • We need to stand up for our rights and those of others.

Let’s stand up for human rights!
