Cambia Health Solutions Earns Top Marks in 2019 Corporate Equality Index

Cambia Health Solutions earns 100 percent on Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 17th Annual Scorecard on LGBTQ Workplace Equality

March 28, 2019

Cambia Health Solutions, a family of companies driving human-centered health care, proudly announced that it received a third perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. Cambia Health Solutions joins the ranks of over 560 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.

 “The top-scoring companies on this year’s CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Many of these companies have also become vocal advocates for equality in the public square, including the dozens that have signed on to amicus briefs in vital Supreme Court cases and the more than 170 that have joined HRC’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act. Time and again, leading American businesses have shown that protecting their employees and customers from discrimination isn’t just the right thing to do -- it’s also good for business.”

"Cambia’s people-centric culture fosters a diverse and inclusive workspace. Here we are focused on understanding and taking into consideration the needs of all our employees; including their individual identities. No matter their background, we empower all employees to fearlessly share their diverse thinking," stated Manda Bednarik, Cambia Health Solutions PRIDE co-chair. "I take pride in knowing Cambia is dedicated to a deeper understanding of the challenges we face as an LGBTQIA+ community, and partnering with us to overcome them."

The 2019 CEI evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. Cambia Health Solution’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
