FLORHAM PARK, N.J., July 21, 2022 — The American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN recognized Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), a business process services and solutions company, as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.” Participating in the Disability Equality Index (DEI) for the first time, Conduent scored 90 out of 100. The DEI evaluated Conduent’s culture, leadership, enterprise-wide access, employment policies, community engagement, and supplier diversity practices for inclusion and equality for those with disabilities.
“Conduent is committed to a strong, inclusive culture and by participating in the DEI we are able to benchmark our progress and continue to improve inclusion for all associates,” said Walter Frye, Global Head, Diversity & Inclusion and Corporate Responsibility, at Conduent. “This award acknowledges the teamwork of leaders, our DisAbility Impact Group , and associates across the company who strive to improve policies and practices for an accessible and inclusive workplace for all.”
The DisAbility Impact Group, one of eight employee impact groups at Conduent, empowers associates, raises awareness, builds community and fosters collaboration through company-wide activities.
“There is no single best way to practice disability inclusion, however, the companies taking the DEI share the desire to create a workplace that fosters the concept of bringing your whole self to the office,” said Maria Town, President and CEO of AAPD. “We look forward to working with all of the participants to help identify meaningful ways to build upon their current practices as we continue on the disability inclusion journey together.”
The DEI was launched in 2015 by Disability:IN and The American Association of People with Disabilities. Today the DEI is acknowledged as the world’s most comprehensive benchmarking tool for the Fortune 1000 and Am Law 2001 to measure disability workplace inclusion against competitors. In 2022, 415 corporations, including 69 Fortune 100, 188 Fortune 500, and 227 Fortune 1000 used the DEI to benchmark their disability inclusion efforts.
In addition to earning a top score in the DEI, Conduent was recently recognized by Forbes for placing among America’s Best 500 Employers for Diversity 2022 . The company also scored a perfect 100 in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Equality Index in January, and was recognized as a Best Company for Women and Diversity by Comparably in 2021.
