“We are honored to accept this award from the NOD, a leader in inclusion for people with disabilities,” said Kim Manigault, chief diversity and inclusion officer. “Inclusion is intentional. This award reflects the work across many lines of business and partnerships that provide supportive experiences for people with disabilities who engage with and work for KeyBank.”
Manigault pointed out that 57 million people with disabilities live in America (NOD.org). Here are some of the activities we have underway at KeyBank to support people with disabilities and caregivers:
- Champions of People with Disabilities (CPD) business networking group: The CPD business networking group strives to create a welcoming environment and sustain inclusive best practices for employees and clients with disabilities and/or caregivers.
- Encouragement of voluntary self-identification: From 2017 to 2018, there was a 40% increase in employee self-identification; a 44% increased enterprise response rate; and 13% CPD KBING membership increase from 3Q 2018 to 4Q 2018.
- Talent acquisition: The percentages of hires for individuals have nearly doubled since focused efforts in 2015.
- Reasonable accommodations from recruitment to employment: When applying for jobs, individuals with disabilities or disabled veterans can request reasonable accommodations to apply.
