This year Clarivate™ is proud to make a first appearance in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI)—joining 1,271 major U.S. businesses that were ranked in 2022. This is an important first step in measuring our progress towards LGBTQ+ workplace equality.
What is the Corporate Equality Index?
Each year the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) runs the Corporate Equality Index benchmarking survey and report to measure corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:
- non-discrimination policies across business entities;
- equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;
- supporting an inclusive culture; and
- corporate social responsibility.
Businesses that meet all the criteria to earn a 100% rating are designated as being one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.” While this marks the inaugural year that Clarivate has participated in the assessment, our goal is to be named a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” in the future.
A bright future for workplace equality at Clarivate
We are building a special company where Clarivate colleagues feel they can be themselves and thrive. Celebrating diversity while creating an environment that is supportive and inclusive will enable us to better serve all our customers and communities.
“We are building a special company where Clarivate colleagues feel they can be themselves and thrive.”
But we won’t stop there. We are also focusing on other important areas where we can make a difference. In April 2021, Clarivate published its first Annual Sustainability Report which includes goals for 2021 to advance LGBTQ+ equality and that are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are proud of our participation in the Human Right Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index and look forward to creating positive change and continuing to support LGBTQ+ colleagues worldwide.
