Inequality "undermines the fabric of society," according to Unilever CEO Paul Polman. Unilever has a market cap of around $130 billion and owns household brands like Axe, Hellman's, Dove, Knorr, Ben & Jerry's, and Vaseline.

Public figures ranging from musician Elton John and writer Gloria Steinem have also posted videos as part of the foundation's #InequalityIs campaign.
