Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion received a top score for the second consecutive year in the 2022 Disability Equality Index®. For this year’s index, Unisys scored a 100, signifying the company as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.”
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a joint initiative of Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). The index is a comprehensive benchmarking tool to measure disability workplace inclusion and is designed to help companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions to help reinforce their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Each company receives a score on a scale of zero to 100 based on a review of key performance indicators, including: culture and leadership, enterprise-wide access, employment practices, community engagement, supplier diversity and non-U.S. operations.
“There is no single best way to practice disability inclusion, however, the companies taking the DEI share the desire to create a workplace that fosters the concept of bringing your whole self to the office,” said Maria Town, president and CEO of AAPD. “We look forward to working with all of the participants to help identify meaningful ways to build upon their current practices as we continue on the disability inclusion journey together.”
“At Unisys, we prioritize breaking down the barriers individuals face and fostering an inclusive culture that cultivates respect, positivity and equal opportunity for all,” said Katie Ebrahimi, senior vice president and chief human resources officer, Unisys. “We are humbled by this recognition for the second year in a row and are inspired to continue nurturing an environment in which all of our people, partners and suppliers are valued.”
