MONDAY, DECEMBER 5: Human Rights Campaign to Launch 2017 Corporate Equality Index in Mexico City
HRC and HRC Equidad MX are partnering with Dow Chemical Company, PEMEX, J.P. Morgan Chase and the U.S. Embassy for second international launch of Corporate Equality Index
MEXICO CITY — The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of America’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, in partnership with HRC Equidad MX: Global Workplace Equality Program, will officially launch the 2017 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) at the Dow Mexico City Office on Monday, December 5th at 7:00 PM. CST. This year’s CEI launch in Mexico City marks the second international launch of HRC’s landmark annual survey of global businesses’ LGBTQ inclusive policies, practices, and benefits.
HRC is proud to join with major multinational employers in Mexico, Dow and J.P. Morgan Chase, as well as PEMEX, the Mexican state-owned petroleum company, for the launch of this year’s CEI. Over the last decade, the CEI has become a major driver of progress for LGBTQ workers around the world. Responding to the most rigorous evaluation in the history of the CEI, a record number of companies will earn a 100 percent rating this year, reflecting the adoption of vital LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices — including global commitments to adopting sexual orientation and gender identity non-discrimination protections, establishing employee resource groups and offering trans-inclusive health benefits.
