We are pleased to announce that EA has been given a 100% rating by the Human Rights Campaign earning the distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality” for 2013. Businesses must demonstrate policies, benefits and practices that are best-in-class demonstrations of corporate commitments to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees in order to be named to the list.
“I am very pleased that EA has scored a 100% rating and been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign in a year where the company has taken significant steps to remain inclusive,” said Gabrielle Toledano, Chief Talent Officer, EA. “EA has made changes to our medical benefits, been involved in LGBT events in our community and taken a public stance against the Defense of Marriage Act. EA champions diversity with a work environment where everyone feels welcome and can be themselves.”
The HRC's Corporate Equality Index (CEI) report, released each fall since 2002, provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to LGBT employees. It is the premiere national benchmark for LGBT workplace inclusion. Only businesses rated 100% are recognized for the year.
