Dow was recently honored with a Leading Disability Employer Seal by the National Organization on Disability (NOD), marking the seventh consecutive year Dow has received the recognition.

NOD spotlights the transformative contributions made by business leaders in promoting employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. It also honors those organizations that prioritize diversity, equity and importantly, accessibility – setting a high standard for others to follow.

Leading Disability Employer Seal recipients are determined based on data provided by companies on the NOD Employment Tracker. The Tracker helps companies understand which employment practices correlate to improved talent outcomes related to hiring, retention and advancement of people with disabilities.

Scoring prioritized practices that are associated with increased disability employment outcomes over time, and companies received additional points based on the percentage of people with disabilities in their workforce. Dow scored highly when considering disability employment strategy, practices and performance.

“This recognition represents Dow’s deep commitment to inclusion and accessibility,” said John Sampson, senior vice president of Operations, Manufacturing and Engineering and executive sponsor for Dow’s Disability Employee Network (DEN). “Every day, we work to create a culture at Dow where every person’s talent can be brought to the table to create value – for our Company, communities and the world.”

In addition to Dow’s HR policies and talent acquisition programs, the DEN employee resource group aims to empower employees with disabilities and to raise awareness and educate about disabilities to create better allies.

"Organizations like Dow understand that by harnessing the talents of people with disabilities, they reap the benefits of a more innovative, diverse and dedicated workforce,” said NOD President Carol Glazer. “The Leading Disability Employer Seal honors organizations who have not only embraced inclusivity but have taken concrete steps to break down barriers for individuals with disabilities and create an environment for all to thrive.”
