Get Checked – Breast Cancer Awareness Month
At INC Group, we kickstarted the month of October by once again showing our support for Breast Cancer Awareness. This is an annual observance held throughout the month of October to raise awareness about breast cancer, promote early detection, and support those affected by the disease.
INC UAE held a ‘Pink Day’ in our newly opened Dubai Hills office on the 27th of October where employees were encouraged to wear a pink item as well as the iconic pink ribbon from which all proceeds were donated to a licensed charity organisation. A small effort goes a long way toward funding research, sourcing preventative methods, diagnosis, treatment, and of course finding a cure.
Check In – World Mental Health Day
The 10th of October marked ‘World Mental Health Day’, and the theme for this year, set by the World Foundation of Mental Health, was ‘Mental health is a universal human right’.
This important day is a subtle reminder that not all suffering is outwardly evident, underscoring the significance of regularly checking in on colleagues, friends, family and loved ones.
