The CEO of the Valuable 500, Katy Talikowska, advocates for synchronised collective action; using the power of business to drive lasting change for the 1.3 billion people around the world who are living with a disability.
The Valuable 500 is a collective of 500 businesses, representing 22 million employees, chaired by Paul Polman, who are innovating for disability inclusion.
Through synchronised collective action, they are tackling three systems barriers:
(1) Lack of representation
(2) Lack of disability reporting
(3) Lack of disability in leadership
On 3rd December 2025, in Tokyo, they will host the Valuable 500 Accountability Summit, where they’ll convene their 500 companies to report on their progress against the above three synchronised collective actions.
At the Valuable 500, they won’t stop until everyone is seen and valued equally.
