Chicago — Conagra Brands, Inc. has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” by The Disability Equality Index (DEI).

The DEI is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that can be taken to achieve disability inclusion and equality. Each company receives a score, on a scale of zero to 100, with those earning 80 and above recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.”

“I am proud of what the Conagra team has accomplished and we remain highly motivated to foster an inclusive and equitable workplace,” says Henry Jones, senior director of diversity and inclusion at Conagra Brands. “We are focused on driving intentional outcomes that reflect our values and have a tangible impact within our workforce and in our communities.”

The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability:IN to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities. 

“Disability inclusion is a rapidly expanding aspect of corporate culture, and it’s gratifying to partner with 415 companies on the 2022 Disability Equality Index,” says Jill Houghton, president and CEO of Disability:IN. “These top-scoring companies not only excel in disability inclusion, many are also adopting emerging trends and pioneering measures that can move the disability agenda from accommodation to inclusion and ultimately, genuine belonging.”
