Cambia Health Solutions earns 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s annual assessment on LGBTQ workplace equality
Cambia Health Solutions proudly announced that it received a fifth consecutive score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. Cambia Health Solutions joins the ranks of 767 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
Earning a perfect score reminds me that I made a great choice joining the Cambia family; that we walk the talk in our commitment to diversity and inclusion at work as well as in how we treat our customers,” says Cambia Marketing Strategist J. Sanders, PRIDE Employee Resource Group co-chair. “Cambia invites employees to bring our entire selves to the work we do – and encourages authenticity, curiosity, and courage.”
Cambia is committed to driving inclusive health innovation based on diverse perspectives and experiences. The company recruits for diverse and equitable representation, viewing diversity as an individual’s inherent and acquired characteristics. Cambia looks forward to leveraging the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s health equity framework to continue this work through 2021.
From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ equality,” said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President. “This year has shown us that tools like the CEI are crucial in the work to increase equity and inclusion in the workplace, but also that companies must breathe life into these policies and practices in real and tangible ways. Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—but the best business decision.”
The results of the 2021 CEI showcase how 1,142 U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also for the 57% of CEI-rated companies with global operations who are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ inclusion in workplaces abroad. Cambia’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 18 million U.S. workers and an additional 17 million abroad. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.
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.
