ABOUT THE DEI
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies create a roadmap of measurable, concrete actions they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. Each company receives a score on a scale from zero (0) to 100, with those who earn 80 or more being recognized as “Best Employer for Disability Inclusion”.
The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the largest disability rights organization in the country, and Disability: IN, the global network for the inclusion of people with disabilities, to jointly promote the inclusion of people with disabilities. The organizations complement each other and bring unique strengths that make the project relevant and credible for companies and the disabled community. The tool was developed by the DEI Advisory Committee, a diverse group of business leaders, policy experts and disability representatives. Learn more at: www.DisabilityEqualityIndex.org.
