JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 15, 2020 -- CSX has been recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion” by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), scoring 90 percent on the 2020 Disability Equality Index (DEI).
“We are honored to be recognized by Disibility:IN as a best place to work for disability inclusion again this year,” said Stephanie Noel, vice president of Human Resources and chief diversity officer. “Our DEI score is a testament to the continued value we place on creating an inclusive environment for our employees. We value diverse perspectives and unique life experiences, which help us better connect with the communities we serve, our customers and our shareholders,” said Noel.
The DEI serves as the nation’s most comprehensive annual benchmarking tool on disability inclusion efforts in the areas of culture, leadership, enterprise-wide access, employment practices, and community engagement. Now in its fifth year, the index, developed by Disability:IN and the AAPD enables America’s leading corporations to self-report their disability policies and practices and to be scored objectively by an independent panel.
