Walgreens for the third consecutive year has been recognized with the top-score of 100 percent on the 2019 Disability Equality Index® (DEI), a national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices related to disability inclusion and workplace equality.

The DEI is a joint initiative by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), and is considered the most comprehensive benchmarking tool for corporate disability inclusion developed by disability advocates and business leaders.

“Employees with disabilities bring so much to organizations. They help us foster collaboration and to better connect with customers. They enhance overall employee engagement, and their unique perspectives help us drive innovation,” said Carlos Cubia, vice president and global chief diversity officer of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., Walgreens parent company. “Supporting and employing those with disabilities is the right thing to do, and it’s good business.”

The 2019 DEI inclusion criteria assessed culture and leadership; enterprise-wide access; community engagement, supplier diversity and employment practices.
