Amazon among top-scoring companies for disability inclusion

 July 21, 2020

Disability Equality Index has revealed that Amazon is one of its Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion, among 205 top-scoring companies.

Investing in accessibility and inclusion

The Disability Equality Index (DEI), the nation’s most comprehensive annual benchmarking tool, facilitated by leading non-profits 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,” said Maria Town, President and CEO of AAPD.

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.”

Further recognition for championing disability issues

Previously, Amazon has also been recognized for championing disability issues at the National Diversity Awards

Both Amazon's People with Disabilities employee group and the group’s chair Suzie Miller were nominated for awards.
