Dow Recognized Among “Best Places To Work” For LGBT Employees By HRC

Marking the ninth consecutive year of recognition for its continued leadership of and commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the workplace, The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) today was honored by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) for achieving a 100 percent rating on its corporate equality index – a national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT employees. Dow has participated in the HRC index since its inception in 2002, and was the first in the chemical industry to receive a perfect score back in 2005.

For more than a decade, Dow has offered best-in-class practices of LGBT inclusion in the workplace including equal benefits to same-sex partners for everything from health, dental and life insurance to bereavement leave, relocation and dual career assistance. Dow also recognizes survivor benefits for its pension plan for LGBT, and began providing transgender benefits in 2010. Only one in four FORTUNE 500 companies meet these collective criteria, according to data compiled by the HRC.

“Our culture of inclusion is not only is matter of equality and fundamental human rights, it is a critical business imperative, playing a fundamental role in attracting and retaining the best and brightest talent,” said Howard Ungerleider, Executive Vice President, Dow and Executive Sponsor, GLAD (gays, lesbians and allies at Dow). “The recognition by the HRC is a testament to our tireless efforts to support this ideal, and to ensure every Dow employee is able to bring their whole self to work and to live up to their fullest personal and professional potential.”

Ungerleider added, “Through courage, fortitude and by living the Dow values of integrity and respect for people, we continue to shape the culture at Dow and in society by collaborating with like-minded organizations to foster inclusion, celebrate differences and strive toward a working environment where sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression are irrelevant.”
