The Disability Equality Index is a comprehensive, objective, reflective and forward-thinking disability inclusion assessment by Disability:IN and and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).

Initiating companies into disability inclusion landscape

The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that initiates companies into the disability inclusive landscape, incorporate practices that facilitate inclusive workplaces, and set goals driven by inclusive values.

Data from the DEI helps a company tap into an underutilized and undercapitalized pool of workers with disabilities and progress from accommodation, to inclusion, to genuine belonging.

Scoring the Disability Equality Index

The DEI measures a wide range of criteria within six categories:

  • Culture & Leadership: Businesses commit to and demonstrate a sustained, visible cultural commitment to disability inclusion and demonstrate visible leadership commitment to disability inclusion throughout the organization.
  • Enterprise-Wide Access: Businesses commit to and demonstrate commitment to workplace accessibility.
  • Employment Practices: Businesses commit to and demonstrate commitment to benefits, recruitment practices, employment practices, and accommodation practices that fully incorporate and include individuals with disabilities.
  • Community Engagement: Businesses demonstrate public-facing engagement practices that celebrate and support individuals with disabilities.
  • Supplier Diversity: Businesses commit to and demonstrate supplier diversity practices that fully include and utilize disability owned, veteran–disability owned businesses and service-disabled veteran owned businesses.
  • Non-U.S. Operations: Businesses commit to and demonstrate non-U.S. practices that fully incorporate and include individuals with disabilities.
