Owens Corning Earns Perfect Score On Corporate Equality Index For Ninth Consecutive Year

Stocks in this article: OC

TOLEDO, Ohio, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) today announced that it received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) published by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, a civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.

Owens Corning has achieved a 100-percent CEI rating every year since 2004.

The 2013 CEI rated 889 companies, including all Fortune® 500 companies, on a scale of 0 to 100 percent relative to 40 specific policies and practices. 

Owens Corning was one of a record of 252 companies to achieve a perfect CEI score.  To achieve a perfect score and the distinction as one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality," companies must have fully-inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency and a public commitment to equality, and exercise responsible citizenship.

"Owens Corning is honored to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for a ninth consecutive year as one of the best places to work for LGBT equality," said Frank O'Brien-Bernini, Owens Corning vice president and Chief Sustainability Officer, and executive sponsor of the company's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Advocates (GLBTA) affinity group.

"Embracing diversity and inclusion provides a competitive advantage by creating an environment where the most outstanding talent in the world feels welcomed, respected and valued for their contributions," O'Brien-Bernini added.  "This enables Owens Corning and our customers to take full advantage of the collective experience and perspective that our employees possess."

Owens Corning has demonstrated a commitment to maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace.  The company operates six employee-led affinity groups that work to advance the company's commitment to inclusiveness.  These affinity groups, which include the African American Resource Group; Connections; GLBTA; Hispanic Diversity Council; Owens Corning Multicultural Network; and Women's Information Network, develop programs and activities focused on fostering employee engagement, business impact and community connections.
