Amazon receives perfect score in Corporate Equality Index

 January 23, 2020

Celebrations are in store for prime employer for women, Amazon, after the company scooped a perfect score in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality Index.

Amazon is one of 686 companies that earned a top score of 100 in the index and met the highest benchmarks in the assessment of workplace LGBTQ inclusion in the history of the report.

“These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do - it is also the best business decision. In addition, many of these leaders are also advocating for the LGBTQ community and equality under the law in the public square,”  said HRC President, Alphonso David.

"We’re proud to receive a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index. Thank you to all Amazonians for supporting a workplace culture of inclusion and acceptance," stated Amazon.

As part of the company's diversity and inclusion efforts, Amazon has a Transgender Toolkit - a set of resources intended for transgender employees and their peers to help navigate transitioning and other workplace issues. It has also rolled out a pronouns tool in its online global company directory, participated in dozens of Pride parades, illuminated the Spheres for Pride, and created an Alexa skill to deliver Pride facts year-round.

In addition, Amazon has its glamazon employee group which connects LGBTQ+ Amazonians. The group has active chapters around the world who work closely with HR and business teams to create an inclusive workplace and host hundreds of community events.
