July 20, 2022: Global leader in video commerce earns a top score on the 2022 Disability Equality Index for its commitment to fostering a culture of diversity, belonging, and fairness

WEST CHESTER, Pa. – Qurate Retail Group, a world leader in video commerce (“vCommerce”) across linear TV, ecommerce sites, streaming experiences and social apps, has earned a top score on the 2022 Disability Equality Index (DEI) and is being recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.”

Launched in 2015, the DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability:IN, the global business disability inclusion network, to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities. Today, the DEI is acknowledged as the world’s most comprehensive benchmarking tool for the Fortune 1000 to measure disability workplace inclusion. Now in its eighth year, the DEI exists to help businesses make a positive impact on the unemployment/underemployment of people with disabilities and is acknowledged as the most robust disability inclusion assessment tool in business.

“At Qurate Retail Group, we fiercely believe that diversity, belonging, and fairness are the engines of innovation and creativity,” said Virginia Nguyen, Chief Diversity Officer at Qurate Retail Group. “It’s an honor to be recognized as a DEI Top Scorer and “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” for our efforts in advancing disability inclusion and we remain steadfast in our focus on creating communities and experiences that are inclusive and welcoming for all.”

 

 

“Disability inclusion is a rapidly expanding aspect of corporate culture, and it’s gratifying to partner with 415 companies on the 2022 Disability Equality Index,” said Jill Houghton, President and CEO of Disability:IN. “These top-scoring companies not only excel in disability inclusion, many are also adopting emerging trends and pioneering measures that can move the disability agenda from accommodation to inclusion and ultimately, genuine belonging.”

As part of its ongoing efforts to champion disability inclusion, in 2021, Qurate Retail Group joined The Valuable 500, a global business collective made up of 500 CEOs and their companies, innovating together for disability inclusion. In line with this commitment, Qurate Retail Group is not only committed to advancing disability inclusion within their workplace, but is also working to deliver more inclusive customer experiences with new adaptive/universal product categories and assortments, continuing to grow and highlight disability-owned businesses and vendors, and  ensuring their platforms are accessible for all.

About the Disability Equality Index®

The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. Each company receives a score, on a scale of zero (0) to 100, with those earning 80 and above recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.” The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability:IN, the global business disability inclusion network, to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities. The organizations are complementary and bring unique strengths that make the project relevant and credible to corporations and the disability community. The tool was developed by the DEI Advisory Committee, a diverse group of business leaders, policy experts, and disability advocates. Learn more at: www.DisabilityEqualityIndex.org.
