NEW YORK; Nov. 27, 2023 – Companies that lead in disability inclusion drive more revenue, net income and profit, according to a new research report from Accenture (NYSE: ACN) in partnership with Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).

Building on the 2018 landmark report on disability inclusion at work in the United States, the follow-up research, titled “The Disability Inclusion Imperative,” explores disability inclusion amid major technological advances, changes in geopolitical dynamics and the effects of a global pandemic across 346 companies in the US. These companies participated in the Disability Equality Index (DEI), a leading global benchmarking tool that scores businesses on their disability inclusion policies and practices.

“Disability inclusion is a topic close to my heart, and it is imperative, both from a business and societal aspect, to build an accessible, inclusive environment where all our people can belong and thrive,” said Jill Kramer, chief marketing and communications officer, Accenture, and co-chair for the cross-industry coalition of Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and Chief Communications Officers (CCOs) to advance accessibility in marketing powered by Disability:IN.
