PPG announced that it has been recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion” by the DISABILITY EQUALITY INDEX® (DEI) for the second consecutive year.

The DEI was launched in 2015 by Disability:IN and The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and is acknowledged as the most robust disability inclusion assessment tool for Fortune 1000 and Am Law 2001 businesses. Each participating company receives a score from zero to 100, with those earning 80 and above recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.” PPG earned the top score possible: 100.

In 2023, 485 corporations, including 249 of the Fortune 1000, used the DEI to benchmark their disability inclusion efforts. The scoring criteria measures six major categories: culture and leadership, enterprise-wide access, employment practices, community engagement, supplier diversity, and non-U.S. operations.

“I am exceptionally proud of this recognition, which is a reflection of the thousands of employees around the world who are committed to building an inclusive culture at PPG,” said Kevin Walling, PPG chief human resources officer. “The index has become an invaluable resource in helping us to validate our efforts and measure our progress year over year.”

“Businesses have the power to drive the global advancement of disability inclusion, and we’re thrilled to see more companies than ever leverage the Disability Equality Index to measure their progress,” said Jill Houghton, president and CEO of Disability:IN. “We recognize these top-scoring companies as a ‘Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion’ for their passion and efforts to lead the way in creating greater equity for people with disabilities in the workplace, marketplace, and supply chain.”
