NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2017 — UBM plc, the world's largest pure-play business-to-business events organizer and marketing services organization, proudly announces its Americas division has received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. UBM joins the ranks of major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year.
“We are proud and honored that our US team have been recognized on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Annual Scorecard on LGBTQ Workplace Equality,” said Scott Schulman, CEO, UBM Americas. “We at UBM Americas stand by the importance of supporting an inclusive, vibrant work environment and culture that celebrates the diversity of our employees and the communities we serve. This recognition from the Human Rights Campaign reinforces one of our core value commitments to continuously nurture and grow the passion of our people and create an inspiring place to work.”
The CEI is considered the premier benchmark for corporate policies and practices relating to LGBTQ employees and their families, as well as LGBTQ workplace inclusion. The index evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. UBM Americas efforts in satisfying all of the CEI's criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
