Disability Equality Index (DEI). The U.S. Business Leadership Network (USBLN) and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) developed the Disability Equality Index (DEI) as a joint initiative. Developed by a diverse group of business leaders, policy experts, and disability advocates 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. It is an aspirational, educational, recognition tool that is intended to help companies identify opportunities for continued improvement and help build a company’s reputation as an employer of choice.

USBLN and AAPD will help companies improve their scores over time by working in partnership with employers to provide technical assistance and help identify ways to improve their scores. Their expressed goal is to empower organizations to achieve the highest possible score and to be recognized for their successes. A fee is charged to cover administrative costs.
