Impact and growth

- 27 Accessibility Gap Uprisings
- 50 organizations and social entrepreneurs advised;
Since the enactment of Quota Law No. 21.015 in Chile, the demand to comply has been exponential, and our differentiating seal is the advice in RSI, as a comprehensive and careful supply of inclusion processes, which evolves from the strategic review that is carried out in conjunction with companies to take them to a new level in diversity and inclusion for example, opening their doors to entrepreneurs with disabilities, through the purchase of their services / products.
Our innovative seal is the tri–sectoral approach: with the State, Companies and Civil Society, we have managed to generate a greater network of collaboration that favors inclusion. In addition, we operate sustainably seeking replicability: with the sale of products and services in the RSI area, we can create projects to empower PwD and their support networks, free of charge.
The RSI model is designed to encourage the inclusion of communities with barriers of access, especially PwD that we support throughout Chile, as well as the internal and external clients of the organizations and their collaborators that we advise.
