Prada joins the Valuable 500 to include persons with disabilities in fashion

Prada will be the first luxury fashion company to join The Valuable 500, a global initiative that promotes the needs of persons with disabilities by asking various businesses to include disability in their leadership meetings and long-term plans.

“Prada strongly recognizes the intrinsic value of persons with disabilities and commits to supporting all within its inclusion and sustainability agenda.” said Prada in a statement.

The company is currently exploring different opportunities to define a long-term program of activities, which will start with a commitment to hiring individuals affected by trisomy 21 (Down’s syndrome) into its Italian retail network.
