If disability is not on your board agenda, neither is diversity
(Nor is innovation, productivity, brand experience, talent, risk, reputation...)
Join The Valuable 500 and make disability your business
Submissions will now close on Sept 15th 2020. The final 500 leaders will be announced at the United Nations General Assembly 2020.
The Valuable 500
The global movement putting disability on the business leadership agenda.
We need 500 national and multinational, private sector corporations to be the tipping-point for change and to unlock the business, social and economic value of people living with disabilities across the world. Because the potential of 1.3 billion should not be ignored.
Whether you’re starting your disability inclusion journey, scaling up or leading the charge, join The Valuable 500 to show the world how it’s done.
Our goal: 500
CEO signatures: 252
Days remaining: 203
Why this matters
Over 1.3 billion people across the world live with some form of disability.
Together with their friends and family, this group has a spending power of $8 trillion.
80% of disabilities are acquired between the ages of 18 and 64 - the workforce age.
Only 4% of businesses are focussed on making offerings inclusive of disablilty.
There are more clothing lines for dogs than for disabled people.
What does it mean for your business?
- Heightened innovation
- Increased customer base
- Improved experiences for all
- Greater workplace productivity
- Reduced risk
