  • For the third year in a row, Enel joins other Fortune 1000 and Am Law 200 companies as a “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion.”


Boston, MA – July 11, 2023 – Enel North America has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” in the 2023 Disability Equality Index® (DEI) with a top score of 100. The DEI, a joint initiative of the American Association of People and Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability:IN, is regarded as the world’s most robust benchmarking tool for the Fortune 1000 and Am Law 200 to measure disability workplace inclusion against competitors.  

"At Enel, we prioritize cultivating a diverse workforce that is accessible for all and celebrates diversity of thought, culture and background. We are proud to see our increased efforts reflected in this year’s results, raising our score from 90 to 100, and are eager to continue implementing new initiatives to further strengthen our culture of disability inclusion." -Miguel Li Puma, Head of People and Organization at Enel North America

The DEI serves as an important resource to celebrate the work Enel is doing, while also providing insight into the work that still needs to be done. Through programs like flexible work options, employee resource groups, digital accessibility and mental wellness benefits, Enel is continually working to improve its accessibility options to ensure its working environment is inclusive for every individual. For example, Enel has a working group and experts in place to analyze, test, and improve the accessibility of digital content. 

As a result, Enel has been named one of the DEI’s “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion” for the third year in a row. For the first time, Enel scored a 100 on the index, in part because of the continued guidance from previous DEI scorecards and Disability:IN. Out of 485 participants across industries, Enel is one of 21 companies from the energy industry who received a top score.

"Businesses have the power to drive the global advancement of disability inclusion, and we’re thrilled to see more companies than ever leverage the Disability Equality Index to measure their progress. We recognize these top-scoring companies as a ‘Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion’ for their passion and efforts to lead the way in creating greater equity for people with disabilities in the workplace, marketplace, and supply chain." -Jill Houghton, President and CEO of Disability:IN.

"These top-scoring companies understand deeply that people with disabilities represent a tremendous source of talent and innovation for their workforce and market share for their brands, and they are trailblazers in our journey towards full disability inclusion in business." -Maria Town, President and CEO of AAPD.
