In honor of the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Disability:IN is publishing the Disability Inclusion Best Practices (.pdf) from top corporations.

These best practices come from top-scoring companies of the Disability Equality Index (DEI). The DEI is a joint initiative between Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities. The DEI is a national, transparent, annual benchmarking tool that offers businesses an opportunity to receive an objective score, on a scale of zero (0) to 100, on their disability inclusion policies and practices.

Companies that rate 80 and above are considered “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” and have shared their best practices in attaining their high rating. Included in these best practices are supplier diversity best practices.

The full list of top-scoring companies of the DEI, as recognized as “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” is available on the link above on the DEI website.
