Technical Development of the Disability Equality Index

New Editions developed functional requirements and built the Disability Equality Index (DEI) ( survey tool system and website. The DEI is a national, transparent benchmarking survey tool that offers Fortune 1000 businesses an opportunity to measure their disability inclusion policies and practices. The tool allows the USBLN to customize an annual survey, which a participating organization can work through to provide responses and supporting evidence across a wide variety of topics and categories. The system takes input received from participants and provides a score on a range of 0-100 points, providing an objective analysis of how an organization has policies in place to include persons with disabilities as a segment of the organization’s workforce.
