Moody's Again Receives Top Corporate Equality Index (CEI) Ranking

Moody's Corporation (NYSE:MCO) announced today that it has again earned a score of 100 percent, the highest possible, on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies related to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) workplace equality administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.

Moody's ranking recognizes its status as a top employer for LGBT workplace equality, and its perfect score also qualified the company for inclusion in the HRC’s list of "Best Places to Work" for LGBT equality, for the second year in a row.

"Moody’s culture strongly values inclusion and respect for all of our employees around the world, and we are very proud to have once again earned the highest possible score in the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index," said Lisa Westlake, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Moody's.

The 2014 CEI rated 934 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBT community. The CEI is released annually by the Human Rights Campaign, America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.

Recognition from the HRC comes amidst other actions Moody’s has taken to advance workplace inclusion and equality across its global office locations. Moody’s has active LGBTA (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and allies) employee resource groups, including several recently established in office locations in Asia and Europe.

Moody’s was also a signatory to an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and supported passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in the U.S. Senate. Earlier this year, Moody’s was honored by the NY-based Hetrick-Martin Institute for its support of LGBT youth programs.
