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.
