Whirlpool Corporation has once again been awarded a 100 percent score on the Disability Equality Index (DEI), making this the fifth straight year of receiving a high score. The DEI is the world’s most comprehensive benchmarking tool for the Fortune 1000 companies to measure disability workplace inclusion. In 2021, 319 corporations, including 67 Fortune 100, 164 Fortune 500, and 180 Fortune 1000 utilized the DEI to benchmark their disability inclusion efforts.
“The Disability Equality Index shines a spotlight on companies that believe they have a stake in creating a more equitable society for people with disabilities,” said President and CEO of AAPD Maria Town. “It is a conduit for our work championing disability rights for the 60 million Americans with disabilities and knocking down barriers to employment, technology and healthcare, and we’re thrilled to see the progress being made today.”
Inclusion and Diversity have been pillars of our global enduring values for a long time.”
