Human Rights Day commemorates the day the General Assembly of the UN adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It is one of the most translated documents around the world – available in more than 500 languages – and celebrates the inalienable rights and freedoms that all people share. Article 1, for example, emphasizes equality and the right to live free from discrimination, which is inextricably linked to our agency’s commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion.

Today, human rights are as important as ever. In fact, more than 90% of the targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030 –  are linked to international human rights standards. We honor our shared humanity and the important work being done to safeguard human rights within FleishmanHillard and our communities worldwide, on Human Rights Day and every day.
