Talented people excluded from jobs and markets
Our research over the past 7 years has observed that more than $220M USD in consumer spending power is largely untapped in Singapore alone because of these three factors:
Harmful bias in business persists related to disabilities, age, race, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity. This results in limited opportunities for consumers and jobseekers from excluded groups. For example 64-percent believe Singaporeans are willing to share public spaces but not interact with the special needs community.
Lack of know-how to implement inclusive business practices effectively. For example only 1-percent businesses in Asia know how to activate niches of jobseekers and consumers with disabilities or other underrepresented groups.
Fragmentation of inclusion sector makes it difficult for companies to focus on bottomline while navigating the diverse needs and various stakeholders in the diversity and inclusion space.
Everyday we are told that something is wrong with us.
Rather than thinking that something is wrong with the environment.
