For the 16th consecutive year, U.S. Bank has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality.
The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:
“The Corporate Equality Index is an important benchmark for our company to ensure we’re continuing to foster inclusion for employees, customers and communities,” said Greg Cunningham, chief diversity officer of U.S. Bank. “This continued recognition shows we’re doing the right thing to meet the needs of the LGBTQ+ community.”
U.S. Bank shows support for the LGBTQ+ community through nonprofit support, community events and product and service offerings tailored to the community’s unique needs. U.S. Bank supports its LGBTQ+ employees through benefits and workplace programs including an LGBTQ+ business resource group.
“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. Congratulations to U.S. Bank for achieving the title of ‘best places to work for LGBTQ+ equality’ and working to advance inclusion in the workplace.”
