Prada Joins The Valuable 500 To Improve Inclusion for People With Disabilities

Promising to take action and share its commitments both publicly and internally.

As an effort to push diversity and inclusion in the fashion world, Prada has joined The Valuable 500, a global community that works to improve the social and economic value of people with disabilities. The move involves all brands under the Prada Group, which includes Prada, Miu Miu, Church’s and Car Shoe.

Although not much has been revealed just yet, the luxury fashion giant is currently working on a program that begins with hiring employees with Down syndrome at its stores in Italy. Marking the first fashion brand to join the initiative, Prada has promised to put disabilities on its board agenda, to take action, and to share commitments both publicly and internally.

“The Valuable 500 community, which embraces a wide range of industries worldwide, is becoming stronger every day. I actively support the decision to join the coalition as I believe strongly in the value of diversity,” Prada Group’s Head of Corporate Social Responsibility Lorenzo Bertelli shared in a statement. He added: “The different backgrounds of the companies adhering to the alliance is a crucial starting point to build a comprehensive global action plan, which will enrich all of us.”

Founded in early 2019, The Valuable 500 aims to have 500 multinational companies publicly commit to improving their inclusion for people with disabilities. You can head over to the organization’s website to learn more.
