We are excited to announce that, for the second consecutive year, WhiteWave received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2017 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report about corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC). WhiteWave joins the ranks of 517 major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year.
The 2017 CEI rated 1,043 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. WhiteWave’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.
This recognition for the second consecutive year reinforces our commitment to our Value of Individuals Matter, and our efforts to create and support a diverse workplace. We are constantly striving to not only change how the world eats for the better, but to change the world for better by running our business in a way that’s good for both our people and our planet.
