Employers have recognized that wellness resources are a form of disability affirmation, the report noted.
This year’s Disability Equality Index presents a notable upward trend: 126 companies reported having a senior executive that is known internally as being a person with a disability. This is up from 99 execs in the 2021 Disability Equality Index.
In partnership with the American Association of People with Disabilities, an equity and belonging organization, Disability:IN published the directory on July 19.
Similar to the Racial Equity Index and Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, Disability:IN ranks and catalogs corporate companies by their inclusion efforts. Featured companies included Amazon for its supplier diversity program, Intuit for its rollout of a QuickBooks ASL integration and Sephora for its All Abilities Hiring Initiative.
