Huron Consulting Group Earns Perfect Score In 2014 Corporate Equality Index

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that it received a perfect score on the 2014 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

“Our employees are integral to our success. Huron fosters an environment of inclusiveness by supporting programs and initiatives that focus on strengthening relationships across our diverse employee base,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. “Huron is honored to be among the top companies recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.”

Huron supports employees through programs such as:

  • Inclusive Company policies and benefits packages.
  • An LGBT employee resource group, known as the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) iMatter Team.
  • Philanthropic support including volunteering at EdgeAlliance in Chicago and participating in the AIDS Run & Walk fundraisers in several cities.

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. Huron’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria resulted in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.

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.
