Disability, Diversity & Inclusion
Disability, Diversity and Inclusion are central to the realization of the Mastercard Foundation’s vision and mission. It is reflected in the Foundation’s strategy, Young Africa Works, which will enable 30 million youth, particularly women, to obtain dignified and fulfilling work by 2030. The Mastercard Foundation seeks a world where everyone has the opportunity to learn and prosper. Creating an accessible and inclusive world must be driven by young people with different and unique lived experiences – youth with disabilities, refugees and displaced youth – who face systemic barriers to accessing education and employment. We believe it is the transformative leadership of these youth and their unique skills and insights that will disrupt systemic barriers and shape a vibrant and inclusive future of work.
