Their delivery of key IT systems for the Paralympic Games allows us to engage with a worldwide audience and deliver a message of inclusion.”

“Over the nine days of competition our athletes exemplified how Change Starts With Sport. And by connecting, securing and digitally enabling the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games to all stakeholders worldwide, the Atos teams played an important role in helping us tell the story of how our Games are a platform for disability visibility, accessibility, and equality of rights.“
