American is the First and Only Airline to Achieve Perfect Marks Every Single Year
American Airlines has been recognized for the 11th consecutive year by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) with the highest possible ranking in the 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is a nationally recognized benchmark that provides an in-depth analysis of America’s top workplaces and their inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and their allies.
Companies like American that earn the top CEI score of 100 percent also are named the “Best Places to Work” in the U.S. American has achieved a perfect score of 100 percent each year since the survey’s inception, something that has been done by only a handful of other companies and no other airlines.
“All of us at American Airlines are grateful for this recognition,” said Denise Lynn, American’s Senior Vice President – People. “We see this milestone as a reflection of our dedicated team getting it right every single day by creating a safe and welcoming environment for our people and our customers. Together with the leaders of GLEAM, American’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Employee Resource Group, we are committed to being a leader in equality and inclusion.”
The Human Rights Campaign is dedicated to promoting and ensuring public understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues through innovative education and communication strategies. A complete list of Corporate Equality Index rankings is available at www.hrc.org.
