Mathematica received a score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s recently released 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning/queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality. Mathematica was one of 38 consulting and business services companies earning top marks this year.
The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria related to nondiscrimination policies, employment benefits, public commitment to LGBTQ equality, responsible citizenship, and demonstrated organizational competency and accountability related to LGBTQ diversity and inclusion. By satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria, Mathematica earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
“At Mathematica, we believe that every one of our nearly 1,400 employee owners should feel comfortable bringing their whole self to work each day,” said Mathematica’s President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Decker. “We’re proud to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as an organization committed to LGBTQ equality, and we’re confident that embracing diverse perspectives doesn’t just make us a great place to work but makes us a better partner with whom to work.”
“The impact of the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index over its 18-year history is profound. In this time, the corporate community has worked with us to adopt LGBTQ-inclusive policies, practices, and benefits, establishing the Corporate Equality Index as a primary driving force for LGBTQ workplace inclusion in America and across the globe,” said Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David. “These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—it is also the best business decision.”
As part of its commitment to supporting LGBTQ employees, Mathematica offers comprehensive domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health insurance coverage, nondiscrimination and unconscious bias training, and an active LGBTQ employee resource group.
