Join us in support of #WeThe15 campaign
We’re proud to support this campaign, encouraging more conversation and discussion around disability.
Published on: 19 August 2021
We want you to join us and support the #WeThe15 campaign. It aims to transform the lives of the 1 billion people globally who have a disability.
15 equates to the percentage of the global population with a disability – visible or hidden.
Together with organisations worldwide, we’re proud to support #WeThe15 – encouraging more conversation and discussion around disability.
#WeThe15 is the biggest ever group of organisations from sport, human rights, policy and business to initiate change for the world’s largest marginalised community.
Inclusion and diversity
The 10-year campaign, which launches before the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, aligns with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The objective is to stop discrimination and make those with a disability active, visible and contributing members of society.
We are involved with #WeThe15 as we are part of The Valuable 500 – one of the founders of the campaign.
The Valuable 500 is a community of 500 national and multinational, private sector businesses. The aim is to help and unlock the social and economic value of disabled people across the world.
By joining The Valuable 500, companies agree to:
- put disability on the board agenda
- make one commitment to action
- share their commitment to The Valuable 500 internally and externally.
Inclusion is at the heart of our mutual purpose. We refer to this as ‘building society, nationwide’. Central to this is our mission to build an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. And for our Society to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve.
