KeyBank is one of 45 organizations selected by The National Organization on Disability to receive the 2017 NOD Leading Disability Employer Seal.
Now in its second year, the seal recognizes companies that demonstrate exemplary employment practices for people with disabilities. This annual recognition is designed to applaud those organizations that are leading the way in disability hiring, and to encourage additional companies to tap into the many benefits of hiring talent with disabilities, including strong consumer preference for companies that employ individuals with disabilities and greater employee engagement across the workforce.
"Diversity and inclusion is not only one of KeyBank's top strategic priorities, it's embedded in our corporate fabric," said Poppie Parish, KeyBank's chief diversity officer. "We're proud to be recognized by the National Organization on Disability as KeyBank's inclusive workforce reflects our communities and strengthens the value we add to our clients."
The winning organizations were announced at NOD's annual disability employment forum, "Inclusion by Design," sponsored by PwC and hosted by The Boeing Co., and are being celebrated using the campaign hashtag #NODdisabilityemployer.
"The National Organization on Disability is a labor-market leader with a mission to break down the wall that separates the abilities and aspirations of 57 million Americans from the avenues of opportunity, achievement and fulfillment that come from productive employment," NOD Chairman Gov. Tom Ridge said. "We help America put ability to work. And so do the winners of this year's NOD Leading Disability Employer Seal. We thank these leading companies for their commitment to building a disability inclusive workforce."
