Delta promotes National Disability Employment Awareness month

Delta Air Lines has announced that for the third consecutive year, it received a top score on the 2018 Disability Equality Index, reinforcing the airline´s commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace as it continues to support employees and customers living with disabilities, the company said.

Delta has reinforced its commitment to creating awareness around disability during October´s National Disability Employment Awareness month by supporting ABLE, Delta´s disability business resource group (BRG). BRG is one of the organizations working to enhance inclusion at the airline.

ABLE´s mission is to continue to make Delta a great place to work for all employees by promoting inclusion, respect for differences, equal opportunity and diversity in the workplace. By hosting events and meetings throughout the year, the organization gives Delta people the opportunity to network, experience disability in its different forms and promote understanding through accessibility, barrier elimination, leadership and education.

Delta regularly receives input from its Advisory Board on Disability (ABD), a group of 13 influencers and decision makers from various groups within the disability community who are also Delta frequent flyers.
