Once again, MasterCard earns a perfect 100 from the Human Rights Campaign, 2015 Best Places to Work, Corporate Equality Index.
The CEI is a national benchmarking tool used to evaluate corporate policies and practices around lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Some ways MasterCard supports the LGBT community include: participating in the annual PRIDE marches; creating a domestic partner benefit program and offering transgender benefits.
This honor comes on the heels of the release of the diversity white paper from MasterCard’s Global Diversity Office, which spells out why the company places such a high premium on inclusion. As President of Operations and Technology at MasterCard, Rob Reeg, says, “It’s amazing how far we’ve come on LGBT rights in such a short time. Our company has shown a commitment to diversity and inclusion over the years.” You can read more of Reeg’s comments in The Advocate, here.
Congratulations to all of this year’s HRC awards recipients!
