Corporate Equality Index top score
Alaska Airlines received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2017 Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. It is the third year in a row we have received a perfect score.
The 2017 index rated 1,043 businesses in the report, which evaluates 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. Of those, 517 received a 100 percent positive score.
“At Alaska, inclusion is foundational,” said Tammy Young, vice president of human resources. “We are committed to creating a safe and respectful work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, and are proud of our employees for nurturing the kind of behavior that celebrates a wide range of diversity across our organization and carries forth for our customers too.”
