Each year, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) evaluates businesses based on how they treat LGBT employees, and EA is proud to have scored a 100 for the fourth year in a row in the annual Corporate Equality Index.

Each year, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) evaluates businesses based on how they treat LGBT employees, and EA is proud to receive a 100% on the Corporate Equality Index for the fourth consecutive year.

“At EA, we believe each and every one of our employees deserve to come to work with a sense of belonging as their full and complete selves so we can best meet the needs of our diverse gamers as one team,” said David Kim, Senior Director of Diversity, Inclusion & Corporate Social Responsibility at EA. “Providing that inclusive environment starts with providing equal benefits and opportunities to all employees but continues in how we engage in our communities to advocate for full inclusion and equality.”

The HRC measured how businesses provide benefits to those in domestic partnerships, monitored how transgender employees were treated and noted those who promoted LGBT equality through programs and events.

This past year, EA continued to advocate for the LGBT community. EA participates in Pride Parades held all around the world, including this past summer in Seattle and Madrid.

In June, @EA tweeted out support for the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized gay marriage across the United States.

Several EA studios hosted documentary screenings of the “Gaming in Color” documentary.

In July, a group of employees in Austin spent July 4th at the Austin Courthouse cheering on same sex couples waiting to receive their marriage licenses.

EA also sponsored a hackathon at the Lesbians Who Tech Summit this past year in San Francisco.

In addition, EA participated in Shanghai’s first ever LGBT Career Fair, and as a company we have made a public statement about our stance against discrimination in all forms.
