Our story
Mindy is a woman with long curly red hair wearing light blue pants with a light blue top and cape that has red flowers on it. She is posing with her hands on her hips and a slight smile.

Mindy Scheier got to see up-close how people with disabilities don’t get products, services and experiences that others of us take for granted: her son Oliver, who has Muscular Dystrophy, dreamed of wearing jeans like everyone else but none would fit his needs.

First, she adapted a pair herself, using her design skills honed over 20 years working in the fashion industry from being on the design team for the INC collection to being a stylist for Saks Fifth Avenue. Then, in 2014, she launched the Runway of Dreams Foundation (RoDF). Since then, Runway of Dreams has collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger, Zappos Adaptive, Kohl’s, Target, Stride Rite and many other brands.
But still, she sensed a greater need in the market.

It became clear that if a non-profit can raise awareness, it takes a business to help change the way businesses work with and think about people with disabilities.

So GAMUT was born in 2019.​

Representing people with disabilities and creating a marketplace where businesses and industries can be connected to this audience, GAMUT gives its community a voice in how brands market to them, create products for them and represent them. The continued support of the mission of Runway of Dreams will always be a component of the GAMUT business plan as the company’s 501(c)3 partner.

By 2022, GAMUT already manages a large talent pool of people with disabilities, providing opportunities such as film, television, modeling, focus groups, fit testing and product development. GAMUT also works closely with many mainstream brands in all aspects of their business for a truly comprehensive approach on how to serve and include people with disabilities.
