Over 15% of the global population live with a disability, but they are still the largest under-represented group in the world. To address this, Unilever has committed to building an organisation that is a beacon of diversity and inclusion by setting a global goal to have 5% of their workforce represented by people with a disability by 2025, as well as becoming the no.1 employer of choice for people with a disability.

Beyond originating the Unilever Enable Community, a network of employees who are people with a disability, Unilever has created an Accessibility Centre of Excellence to ensure inclusive practises, including accessible IT, recruitment, communications, and workplace designs, are in place in every global office by 2025.
Unilever is also driving change both in front of and behind the camera to better reflect the world we live in and the consumers they serve. Since 2016, the company has been on a mission to Unstereotype their advertising – eradicating outdated stereotypes and advancing progressive representation of people.
As part of 2021’s Act 2 Unstereotype, Unilever launched Disability Inclusive Marketing Guidelines and established a disability inclusion framework for advertising productions to enable Unilever brands and their agencies to work more effectively, inclusively, and collaboratively with people with disabilities, in front of and behind the camera.
