“I’m thrilled that our Humana team continues to raise the bar on inclusion and that the efforts continue to be recognized,” Bryan Miller, co-president of Humana’s PRIDE Network Resource Group, said. “This HRC Corporate Equality Index (CEI) score is particularly important in signaling that Humana is a company where inclusive culture, policies and practices are prioritized. Particularly in today’s market, I believe it makes a difference in helping us attract and retain top talent, too.”
“For the past ten years, Humana’s PRIDE Network Resource Group has connected thousands of LGBTQ+ and ally employees to build inclusivity, drive innovation, and impact our communities,” Lynn Baker, co-president of Humana’s PRIDE Network Resource Group, shared. “As we continue to drive toward inclusive language in our technology platforms and developing new ways for employees and customers to celebrate diversity, this HRC announcement is wind in our sails!”
“When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers—from the factory floor to corporate headquarters, in big cities and small towns—could have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live life authentically,” said Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Programs, Research and Training. “We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index paved the way to that reality for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere.”
The results of the 2022 CEI showcase how 1,271 U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also for the 56 percent of CEI-rated companies with global operations who are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad. Humana’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality. The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars: 1) non-discrimination policies across business entities; 2) equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families; 3) supporting an inclusive culture; and 4) corporate social responsibility.
