Progressive employer Medtronic has scored 100 on the 2020 Disability Equality Index and is recognized as a 'Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion' by Disability:IN - a leading nonprofit resource for business disability inclusion worldwide whose mission is to help forge an inclusive global economy where people with disabilities participate fully and meaningfully.

"We truly believe in a workplace where all feel welcome and where every person is recognized for their unique abilities," said Medtronic.

Investing in accessibility and inclusion across the company

The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a comprehensive annual benchmarking tool, facilitated by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).

The DEI is a prominent benchmarking tool for the Fortune 1000 and America’s top 200 revenue grossing law firms (Am Law 200) to gauge their level of disability workplace inclusion against competitors. 

“The Disability Equality Index top scoring companies represent those businesses that have invested in accessibility and inclusion across their enterprise. As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ADA, it is wonderful to see the progress made by these companies, and we hope to see continued progress and support for the DEI over the next 30 years,” said Maria Town, President and CEO of AAPD.

Committed to advancing disability inclusion and equality

Jill Houghton, President & CEO, Disability:IN said “The best way to attract, retain and grow talent with disabilities is to create an accessible, inclusive workplace. This year’s top scoring Disability Equality Index companies are demonstrating their commitment to many of the numerous leading disability inclusion practices featured in the DEI, recognizing that there’s still room for improvement. We are proud to have developed strong partnerships with corporate allies who are committed to advancing disability inclusion and equality across their businesses in the United States and around the world.”
