Brown-Forman Corporation Named One of the DEI® Best Places to Work
The 2016 DEI survey awarded points in four major categories: Culture and Leadership, Enterprise-wide Access, Employment Practices, and Community Engagement and Support Services. Companies receive points in any given area by responding affirmatively to a significant portion of the numerous best practices outlined.
“Brown-Forman is proud to be recognized as a best in class organization
for disability inclusion practices,” said
The DEI was completed by 83 Fortune 1000-size companies, two-thirds of these companies top the Fortune 500 list. A comprehensive list of DEI top scoring companies deemed “2016 DEI Best Places to Work” can be found at www.disabilityequalityindex.com.
The DEI is a joint initiative of the USBLN and AAPD. Developed by the DEI Advisory Committee, a diverse group of business leaders, policy experts, and disability advocates, the DEI is a national, transparent, annual benchmarking tool that offers businesses an opportunity to receive an objective assessment of their overall disability inclusion policies and practices. It is an aspirational, educational, recognition tool that goes far beyond legal compliance, helping companies identify opportunities for continued improvement, while building their reputations as organizations that value diversity and inclusion.
