To help direct consumers to companies that value LGBTQ inclusion in their workplaces, the Human Rights Campaign ( HRC ) Foundation has released its annual Buying for Workplace Equality guide.
The guide, which the foundation first issued a more than a decade ago, provides consumer information based on company scores reported in the HRC's Corporate Equality Index ( CEI ), as well as HRC-researched data on additional well-known companies and their brands.
Companies receive color-based scores: green ( 80-100 ), yellow ( 46-79 ) and red ( 0-45 ). Green businesses have the highest workplace-equality scores. Just a few of the companies receiving perfect scores are Airbnb, Starbucks, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Nordstrom, Hasbro, Hyundai, Prudential, Bank of America, Hershey, Williams-Sonoma, Macy's and Nike. On the other end of the spectrum are businesses like Giorgio Armani, Neiman Marcus, Krispy Kreme, Weight Watchers, Harley-Davidson and The Trump Organization.
