The Walt Disney Company has now earned the 2020 Top Marks for maintaining LGBTQ equality in the workplace. Earning a “perfect score” of 100 on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for 14 years now has shown their dedication to their employees.
According to The Walt Disney World Company, “the 2020 CEI rates companies on criteria in the following categories: non-discrimination policies, employee benefits, demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion, supplier and diversity, public commitment to LGBTQ equality and responsible citizenship.” Basically, that means Disney did a really great job at allowing anyone to have a chance at working for them, despite sexual orientation, though embracing those in the LGBTQ community.
Disney has been able to keep such equality since 2007 (the first year earning a 100 CEI score) by making it a comfortable and supportive place for anyone.
The Walt Disney Company shares that, “Disney has been a leader in providing benefits to same-sex couples and promoting workplace equality, including and supporting transitioning employees, providing leader training on LGBTQ inclusion and fostering LGBTQ business employee resource groups.”
Disney also shows their huge support of the LGBTQ community by giving to organizations that are specifically advocates for human rights, such as Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, GLSEN, Trevor Project, and The Human Rights Campaign. These acts have allowed them to maintain workplace equality for the LGBTQ community!
