March 10, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Bloomberg announced that it has earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and been designated as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality in the United States. This is the fifth year in a row that Bloomberg’s inclusive workplace has earned top marks in this internationally recognized annual assessment for businesses to gauge their level of LGBTQ workplace inclusion. Bloomberg also recently joined the Business Coalition for the Equality Act, a movement that is aligned strongly with the company’s prior advocacy efforts to support LGBTQ rights and to ensure that LGBTQ people are provided the same basic protections as other protected groups under federal law.
The CEI is the premier national benchmarking survey and report on corporate benefits, policies, and practices pertinent to LGBTQ employees. The perfect score puts Bloomberg among the top-ranked firms within the banking and financial services sector for the fifth straight year. The company also joins the ranks of more than 750 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
“This very visible recognition showcases how Bloomberg is not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies and benefits in the U.S., but also helping advance the cause of LGBTQ equality in workplaces around the globe,” said Peter Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg LP. “We are thrilled to have earned a spot on the 2020 Corporate Equality Index for the fifth straight year.”
Bloomberg continued demonstrating its strong commitment to LGBT+ inclusion — both in the U.S. and around the globe — during the COVID-19 crisis.
