The deadline to register to participate in the next Disability Equality Index (DEI) is January 13, 2017. Sponsored by the American Association of People with Disabilities and EARN partner U.S. Business Leadership Network, this benchmarking tool offers businesses an opportunity to receive an objective score, on a scale of zero to 100, on their disability inclusion policies and practices. The first annual DEI was launched in 2014 and open to Fortune 1000 companies only. For 2017, private companies with 500 or more full-time employees can also participate. Learn more about the survey.
