Corporate Partnerships

Become an Ally! Join Us as a Corporate Partner, Funder, and Visionary

Globally, people with disabilities are a marginalized population group that crosses all other social sectors and creates an intersectionality with other aspects of identity, such as race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, and socioeconomic status, magnifying the harmful experiences of discrimination, marginalization, exclusion, and health inequities.

By joining WID as an ally and sponsor, your company can advance your internal strategic priorities and publicly demonstrate your commitment to embracing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the corporate and consumer worlds.

Supporting Disability-Led Organizations (DLOs) plays a vital role in effective advocacy for the rights and well-being of individuals with disabilities, ensuring our perspectives and contributions are valued. DLOs possess invaluable expertise and insights into navigating and eliminating the barriers faced by people with disabilities, and their knowledge can inform your company's development of innovative products, services, and policies that are truly inclusive and accessible to all.
