Mayo Clinic named as a “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion”

This is the fourth year Mayo Clinic received a top score on the Disability Equality Index (DEI) thus recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.” Utilized by 247 Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 corporations in 2020, the DEI tool benchmarks a corporation’s disability inclusion efforts. The 2020 DEI measured areas such as culture and leadership, enterprise-wide accessibility, employment practices, community engagement and supplier diversity.

At Mayo Clinic you’ll find resources and partners dedicated to creating opportunities for candidates with disabilities and helping you build your career.

Our aim is to retain and develop current employees, recruit new talent, and remove barriers to inclusivity.


We are committed to reasonable accommodations in jobs or work environments that help employees perform their fundamental duties. Mayo Clinic has staff with expertise in medical and vocational management of disabilities, as well as compliance with state and federal legislation such as the Family and Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Occupational Safety and Health Act, Minnesota Human Rights Act, and workers' compensation statutes.
