Borgata Scores a Perfect 100 on HRC’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index
For the second year in a row, Borgata has scored a perfect 100% on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), making the casino-resort one of HRC’s “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.” This prestigious honor demonstrates Borgata’s commitment to equality and their LGBT team members and guests.
“Borgata is extremely proud to be named among the best places to work for LGBT equality for the second year,” said Tom Ballance, President & Chief Operating Officer for Borgata. “Honoring Borgata’s core values, this recognition demonstrates our commitment to supporting diversity and equal employment for all team members.”
The CEI 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. In 2017, 1,043 businesses were ranked in the report, which you can read in it’s entirety here.
