Everyday we are told that something is wrong with us.

Rather than thinking that something is wrong with the environment.

Our research over the past 7 years has observed more that $220M USD in consumer spending power that in largely untapped in Singapore alone because of these three factors:

  • Harmful business mindsets persist 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 per cent believe Singaporeans are willing to share public spaces but not interact with the special needs community.

  • Lack of capabilities on how to implement inclusive business practices effective. For example only 1% of businesses in Asia know how to activate niche consumer or jobseeker markets.

  • 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.

Our findings our echoed in research the Lien Foundation, Open For Business and other organisations.
