AT&T is celebrating its 2021 recognition for “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion,” earning a 100% top score for the seventh consecutive year on the Disability Equality Index (DEI) – a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability:IN. But for us at AT&T, this is more than just a score. It’s a recognition of our values and culture of inclusivity, especially in the efforts to advance people with disabilities. We’re using this recognition as a way to recommit and continue improving by building a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions to achieve disability inclusion and equality.
The honor acknowledges AT&T’s consistent and dedicated record of supporting employees with disabilities. In 2018, AT&T launched a formal Accessibility and Inclusion program, made up of a cross-functional group of leaders across the business focused on improving the work experience for employees with disabilities.
“I’m proud to work with people who are committed to making progress on inclusion in opportunities, resources, and experiences for all,” says Suzanne Montgomery, Chief Accessibility Officer, AT&T. “We understand that this score doesn’t equate to a perfect lived experience. While we still have work to do to create a fully equitable work experience for our employees with disabilities, I’m proud of the progress we’ve made in recent years. We are committed to continuing to be deliberate in our pursuit of accessibility.”
