Eaton celebrates sixth year on HRC's Corporate Equality Index

 February 01, 2021

Power management company Eaton has achieved 100 per cent success on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

Making meaningful progress towards inclusion and diversity

The citation marks Eaton’s sixth consecutive year to receive a perfect score for their support for LGBTQ workplace equality.

“To be named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality for the sixth straight year is a top honor for our organization and our teams around the globe, and proof positive that we are making meaningful progress toward our aspirational goal of being a model of inclusion and diversity in our industry,” said Monica Jackson, Eaton Vice President, Inclusion and Diversity. “The focus Eaton has placed on inclusion and diversity, the programs and training and education we carry out, and our people who make it all possible are the reason we’ve achieved this honor.”

Protecting LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination

The 2021 CEI rated 1,142 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including nondiscrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.

A record-breaking 767 businesses earned 100 percent on the 2021 CEI.

“From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ equality,” said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President.

“This year has shown us that tools like the CEI are crucial in the work to increase equity and inclusion in the workplace, but also that companies must breathe life into these policies and practices in real and tangible ways. Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—but the best business decision.”
