Anheuser-Busch, Equality Index: 100
Anheuser-Busch has received a perfect Corporate Equality Index (CEI) score of 100 and has been selected by Human Rights Campaign as a “Best Places to Work” organization for 2015.
Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s CEI is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.
More than 970 companies were voluntarily rated in the 2015 CEI report. AB joins the ranks of 365 other major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year in the areas of domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, public engagement with the LGBT community and more.
“In order to achieve a perfect score, a company has to show a deep and serious commitment to treating their LGBT employees fairly and equally on the job,” said Chad Griffin, HRC president. “We also look at whether a company is speaking out in the public square to advocate for LGBT equality here in this country and around the world. AB not only meets these standards, it goes above and beyond the call of duty, making a commitment to equality a fundamental aspect of its corporate values.”
“We are very proud to have been selected by Human Rights Campaign as a Best Place to Work, “ said Kirby Dumaresque, vice president of people continuity. “At AB, we continuously strive to create the most inclusive work environment possible for our employees and this ranking is a great step.”
