The Disability Equality Index (DEI) Best places to Work ranking, which is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN), celebrates the companies that excel in their overall disability inclusion policies and practices. To qualify for this title, companies have to complete the DEI survey, which judges the companies on four major categories: Culture & Leadership, Enterprise-wide Access, Employment Practices, and Community Engagement & Support Services.
