RECORDING: It’s Not About You: Best Practices For Brands Working With Disabled Public Figures

What We Know, What We’re Learning

With disability representation growing in the media, and brands eager to collaborate with disabled public figures, representation itself is not enough. Brands must work to create an environment where collaborations are founded on disability inclusion principles. In this talk, model and influencer Clara Holmes, who works with brands like Meta, Google, and Vogue, advises brands how they can ensure that their collabs with disabled creators uplift the creators themselves, not just the brand’s image.
