Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

MIDLAND, MI -- The Dow Chemical Company has received the highest possible score on the 2018 Disability Equality Index (DEI) for the second year in a row.

The DEI survey, which is administered jointly by the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN) and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), is the nation’s most trusted benchmarking tool for disability inclusion.

The survey measures key performance indicators across culture, leadership, accessibility, employment practices, community engagement, support services and supplier diversity. Participating companies self-reported their disability policies and practices, and were then scored on a scale from 0 to 100. Of the 145 companies that completed the survey, 91 received top marks.

“I am proud that Dow is recognized as a company that strives to be fully inclusive,” said Karen S. Carter, chief inclusion officer for Dow. “We have made significant strides in the past few years, and are working diligently to assure that we provide an environment where all people can thrive and succeed.”

“Dow’s top rating of 100 represents its commitment to continuously improving disability inclusion practices within the company,” said Peter Holicki, executive sponsor for Dow’s Disability Employee Network and senior vice president of Operations, Manufacturing & Engineering and EH&S Operations at Dow. “We know that inclusion is good for people, good for society and good for business. True inclusion will result in unprecedented success – from every perspective. Together, we can brighten each day for everyone. A self-governed and determined life, with solid self-confidence, is what we seek for all of our DEN members.”

As a result of its high score, Dow is recognized as being a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion” by USBLN, further honoring its efforts in inclusive disability policies and practices.
