Otsuka, a leader in mental health, nephrology and digital innovation, has been recognized for the second consecutive year as a top workplace for disability inclusion by the Disability Equality Index® (DEI).
Acknowledged today as the most robust disability inclusion assessment tool in business, DEI was launched in 2015 by Disability:IN and The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).
The 2023 DEI measured: Culture & Leadership; Enterprise-Wide Access; Employment Practices (Benefits, Recruitment, Employment, Education, Retention & Advancement, Accommodations); Community Engagement; Supplier Diversity; Non-U.S. Operations (Non-Weighted).
“Since establishing Otsuka's DE&I office in 2020, we've developed an intentional strategy and vision that is leading our way toward creating an inclusive, equitable today and tomorrow for Otsuka-people, patients, and communities,” said Sabrina Mays-Diagne, Otsuka Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer. “Understanding who we are is essential to delivering on our Otsuka Patient Promise, driving innovation, and fostering a culture of belonging where we can all thrive.
“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. 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,” said Jill Houghton, President and CEO of Disability:IN.
