Performed by 17-time Grammy award winning artist Sting, we are delighted to announce the launch of "The Hiring Chain", a new international communication campaign from CoorDown.

Their message to employers all over the world is that hiring a person with Down syndrome not only changes their life of the person concerned, but can trigger a virtuous cycle of new opportunities for everyone.

The punchy, joyful lyrics come to life on screen and bear witness to the "virtuous" chain of inclusion in the workplace. 

On World Down Syndrome Day 2021, CoorDown takes up the challenge of the pandemic and the social crisis to affirm that job inclusion is not only a right to be guaranteed now more than ever for every person, but it brings benefits in the workplace and in society at large.

Employers inspired by this video should visit to find contact details for organisations around the world that can provide information, support and encouragement to get people with Down syndrome into their workplace.

How is DSi involved?

DSi is working with CoorDown to connect interested employers with Down syndrome associations in their countries.

We are also supporting these local Down syndrome associations with their employment work.
