The 2023-2024 “Equality 100 Award” Recipients

THE HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN FOUNDATION IS announcing the rebrand of the CEI’s 100 point distinction. This honor was previously known as “Best Places to Work '' and served as a tool to celebrate companies that made the commitment to LGBTQ+ inclusion and earned a 100 point score on the CEI. However, we know that there is more that companies can do, beyond the policies and best practices outlined by the CEI and the title “Best Places to Work'' didn't accurately capture what it means to be a top scoring company on the index. HRC also wanted to continue to recognize and celebrate companies that are earning that top score of 100 on the new, more robust CEI. HRC is proud to recognize the following 545 businesses that met all the criteria to earn a 100 percent rating and the new designation of being a 2023-2024 “Equality 100 Award: Leaders in LGBTQ+ Inclusion” recipient. Top-rated CEI employers come from nearly every industry and region of the United States. To earn top ratings, these employers took concrete steps to establish and implement comprehensive policies, benefits and practices that ensure greater equity for LGBTQ workers and their families. We are honored to recognize the following companies:
