ModMed® Scores High First Time on Corporate Equality Index
In its 20th year, the Index ranks mid and large size businesses across many industries on their recognition and support of LGBTQ+ employees
BOCA RATON, Fla. — April 11, 2022 — ModMed® today announced its score of 85 on the company’s first ever submission to the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) report for 2022. The CEI ranking reflects ModMed’s commitment, policies and action toward supporting LGBTQ+ employees, including its strong stance on non-discrimination and initiatives aimed at awareness, inclusion, and empowerment.
“We are so fortunate that our employees bring in their unique voices, passions and experiences which helps create a more rewarding and dynamic workplace,” said Daniel Cane, Chief Executive Officer at ModMed. “We’re proud to have achieved a score of 85 out of 100 and look forward to taking steps toward building an even more diverse and inclusive corporate culture.”
The CEI has grown over the past two decades, and this year includes rankings for 1,271 US-based companies. Criteria for ratings are grouped into four general areas: non-discrimination policies, providing equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ employees and their families, inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility.
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation states, “By using the CEI criteria as a guide, businesses can help ensure that their existing policy and benefits infrastructure is inclusive of LGBTQ workers and their families, resulting in greater recruitment and retention of a talented, diverse workforce.”
“When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers—from the factory floor to corporate headquarters, in big cities and small towns—could have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live life authentically,” said Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Programs, Research and Training. “We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index paved the way to that reality for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere.”
