Valuable 500


Agency: adam&eveDDB


A campaign to promote the world’s first accountability summit for disability inclusion, SYNC25, begins today.

Created by adam&eveDDB, and directed by Dan DiFelice in partnership with Biscuit Filmworks, the launch film aims to inspire and encourage the business community to accelerate their work to end disability exclusion and hold themselves accountable ahead of the SYNC25 accountability summit to be held in Tokyo on 3rd December 2025.

Taking inspiration from a murmuration, the awe-inspiring phenomenon in which very large groups of birds, fishes or insects move and change direction together, the film depicts a group of swimmers with and without disability, all collaborating to form a synchronised display, a metaphorical illustration of the power of Synchronised Collective Action and how beautiful things happen when we come together. The film has been produced in the following versions and formats to ensure accessibility to different audiences.

The agency was briefed on the campaign by the Valuable 500, a charitable, global organisation of 500 partners and companies working together to end disability exclusion. In order to make radical changes to the lives of those 1.3 billion people living with a disability, at SYNC25, CEOs of these 528 businesses will unite to learn from failures, build on successes and set the stage for the work to be done as they strive towards achieving real, transformative change through true Synchronised Collective Action.

The launch film, which goes live on the Valuable 500 social channels today, supports the recent publication of their white paper on disability representation in media, marketing and product design in partnership with Yale University and research company Open Inclusion.

This video brings together disabled people representing diverse, intersectional identities to showcase the beauty and power of synchronicity. Our recent white paper on Inclusive Disability Representation calls on companies to join us in developing a shared, global standard and set of practices that can be applied across various industries.

This is vital to our ongoing work to drive positive change in disability inclusion across three Synchronised Collective Actions in Leadership, Reporting, and Representation. Unstoppable transformation cannot happen alone.”
