Dow Named in “Best Places to Work” DEI for Disability Inclusion

Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

MIDLAND, MI --  Dow has been named to the 2019 Disability Equality Index (DEI) “Best Places to Work”, by receiving the top score for the third year in a row. The DEI survey, which is administered jointly by Disability:IN 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 180 companies that completed the survey, 156 received top marks.

“Dow is proud to be recognized as a top scorer by the Disability Equality Index,” said Peter Holicki, executive sponsor for Dow’s Disability Employee Network and senior vice president at Dow. “Cultivating an inclusive and diverse workforce, including employees with disabilities, is essential to Dow’s success. Inclusion and diversity brings forth a variety of perspectives allowing us to meet the needs of our employees and our customers.”

Dow is committed to creating an inclusive workplace where all employees can bring their whole self to work. In addition to Dow’s policies and programs, the company offers an employee resource group, Disability Employee Network (DEN), to empower employees with disabilities and to raise awareness and educate about disabilities in order to become better allies.

The Disability Equality Index® (DEI) is a national, transparent benchmarking tool that offers businesses an opportunity to self-report their disability inclusion policies and practices. It was developed by two national leaders, American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability:IN, in consultation with the appointed DEI Advisory Committee, a diverse group of experts in business, policy, and disability advocacy.
