Brown-Forman Receives Perfect Score For 2013 Corporate Equality Index

Brown-Forman Corporation (NYSE:BFA)(NYSE:BFB) received a perfect score of 100 points on the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the third consecutive year, earning the coveted distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”

“We are pleased that the HRC recognizes Brown-Forman’s commitment to creating an inclusive workplace that supports all employees with our third consecutive perfect rating,” said Chief Diversity Officer Ralph de Chabert. “I am proud to work for a company that works at creating a level playing field for our LGBT identified coworkers and is willing to take a leadership role in the process.”

Over the past 11 years, the CEI has become the gold standard for corporate policies and practices related to LGBT employees and their families. The CEI rates companies on 40 such policies and practices. A total of 889 businesses have been rated in the 2013 CEI, including the entire Fortune 500. This year a record 293 of the Fortune 500-ranked businesses have an official CEI rating, with the other 201 rated based upon publicly-available data.

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization that works to achieve gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender equality. The HRC is perhaps best known for its annual Corporate Equality Index, http://www.hrc.org, released each fall that provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices relating to LGBT employees.
