For the ninth consecutive year, Caesars Entertainment has received a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI). Caesars was the first gaming company to both achieve and maintain a perfect score on the CEI. The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality. Caesars Entertainment joins the ranks of 391 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks and has been designated as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.
As HRC Foundation Workplace Equality Program Director Deena Fidas stated, “In this 2016 Corporate Equality Index, hundreds of major businesses responded to our new standards for workplace equality with exceptional leadership. Caesars not only meets these standards, it goes above and beyond the call of duty, making commitment to equality a fundamental aspect of its corporate values.”
The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
