On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, LVMH is reiterating its commitment to making excellence a lever for social and professional integration. The Group and its Maisons are fighting the still-too-widespread idea that disability and luxury don’t go together.
For over 15 years, LVMH has made the integration of disabled workers a priority. Steadfast in the commitment to integrating people with disabilities into the workplace, LVMH has launched an inclusive program to enhance accessibility, recruit people with disabilities and provide them with the support that enables them to perform their best at work. The Group values the unique contributions of people with disabilities to the legacy of excellence championed by its Maisons.
With its new “Looking Beyond Disabilities” video episode, LVMH sheds light on some of the people who make the difference and act for a more inclusive workplace. Discover the story of Nolan, working as a talented in-store painter in Louis Vuitton’s store of Beijing Peninsula for two years.
Since 2021, Louis Vuitton’s team in China has successfully recruited 40 employees with disabilities in Retail functions thanks to its Angels Program, which began in 2021, allowing people with hearing disabilities to communicate with hearing people and work like them in the same environment.
