Best Place to Work for LGBT EqualityFor the 11th consecutive year, Kaiser Permanente has achieved a top score on the Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender workplace equality.
“It is extremely gratifying to be recognized once again by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for our industry-leading work in ensuring our workforce is representative of all the members, patients, and communities we serve — no matter their gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation,” said Ronald L. Copeland, MD, FACS, senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer. “Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is fueled by our foundational belief in the right to equity for all people — without exception. This commitment has been with Kaiser Permanente from our beginning, and is integrated into our strategic priorities and reflected in everything we do.”
Now in its 15th year, the 2017 Corporate Equality Index report rated 1,043 businesses on their LGBT-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic-partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBT community. Kaiser Permanente’s efforts in satisfying all of the criteria resulted in a 100 percent score and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.
