We’re so proud to be recognized by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities as a Top Scorer on the Disability Equality Index for the past six years in a row.
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. In 2021, 319 corporations, including 67 Fortune 100, 164 Fortune 500, and 180 Fortune 1000 utilized the DEI to benchmark their disability inclusion efforts.
The 2021 DEI measured: Culture & Leadership; Enterprise-Wide Access; Employment Practices (Benefits, Recruitment, Employment, Education, Retention & Advancement, Accommodations); Community Engagement; Supplier Diversity; Non-U.S. Operations
Globally, people with disabilities represent over one billion people. Disability is a natural part of the human experience, and it crosses lines of age, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and religion. As a part of The Valuable 500, GSK is committed to creating an inclusive and respectful environment that enables our people to thrive.
Our Disability Confidence Network (DCN) is a trusted resource for disability inclusion across GSK that ensures that there is an awareness of disability needs and advocates for accessibility. DCN works to create a disability confident culture through education and awareness, with the expectation of addressing the challenges experienced by people with disabilities when it comes to recruitment, retention, and inclusion.
The recognition by the Disability:IN organization serves as another example of the progress we have made over the years. Our disability confidence journey continues. We continue to build a culture where everyone feels comfortable asking for the accommodations they need to perform their job. Our work is not done until there is equity and access for all.
