ATTN Organizations: Register to Participate in The Disability Equality Index (DEI)

Date: 1/10/2018

The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a unique, joint initiative of US Business Leadership Network (USBLN) and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). It serves as the nation’s most trusted annual benchmarking tool allowing America’s leading corporations to self-report their disability policies and practices. This evolving index objectively scores each corporation on a scale from 0 to 100—100 representing the most inclusive. The DEI was developed by the two national leaders in consultation with the appointed DEI Advisory Committee, a diverse and voluntary group of experts in business, policy, and disability advocacy.

To participate, you must register for the 2018 DEI by no later than 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time on Friday, January 12, 2018. The registration fee to participate is $600.00 and is payable via credit card.

All registered companies will receive access to the 2018 DEI the week of January 22, 2018 to begin submission of responses. Final company DEI responses are due back on April 13, 2018. DEI scores will be finalized by late June 2018.
