Lear Named Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality, Scores 100% on Corporate Equality Index
Lear Corporation was named one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality" from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as a result of receiving a perfect 100% rating for workplace equality on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) recently published by the Foundation and this is Lear's second consecutive year of receiving a perfect rating. The annual CEI survey benchmarks U.S. companies' inclusive policies, practices and benefits for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees.
U.S. Senator Gary Peters wrote to President & CEO Matt Simoncini, stating, "Congratulations on Lear Corporation being named one of the 'Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality' from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Your commitment to diversity and inclusion is worthy of recognition. I appreciate your leadership and dedication to create an environment that is welcoming and accepting of all."
"Lear was the only Tier-1 automotive supplier to receive a perfect score on the latest CEI," said Shari Burgess (Chief Diversity Officer & VP – Treasurer). "This has been a critical priority for senior leadership to demonstrate that Lear truly values diversity and inclusion. Being recognized by the HRC means we continue to emphasize our dedicated efforts to be an employer of first choice. It is noteworthy that we are the only supplier to be listed in the category with so many important customers such as General Motors, Ford, FCA and more."
