BLUE BELL, Pa., July 27, 2023 – For the third year in a row, Unisys (NYSE: UIS) received a top score of 100 in the 2023 Disability Equality Index, demonstrating its commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace. The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions toward disability equality and inclusion. It is a joint initiative between Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities.
"We are delighted to be a part of the 2023 Disability Equality Index. This recognition is another example that demonstrates inclusion and diversity are crucial to building and maintaining a winning culture at Unisys," said Michelle Jones, general counsel and corporate secretary responsible for Unisys environmental, social and governance activities.
