Univision has received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.

This marks the second consecutive year Univision earns this honour. Univision 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.”

Univision CEO Vince Sadusky stated, “At Univision, we value our commitment to being a welcoming place for each person who works with us, including LGBTQ leaders and employees. Our Employee Resource Group, Orgullo (Pride), empowers LGBTQ employees to lead on issues that matter and help educate fellow employees on diversity and inclusion. Univision could not be prouder of this achievement and we will continue working to ensure our company is an inclusive workplace for all.”

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. Univision’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.
