CENTENNIAL, Colo. --News Direct-- Arrow Electronics

CENTENNIAL, Colo., February 14, 2022 /3BL Media/ – For the fourth consecutive year, Arrow Electronics earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index, a benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. Arrow joins the ranks of 840 major U.S. businesses that received top marks this year.

“Arrow is committed to fostering a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace everywhere we operate around the world. We are proud to be recognized for our LGBTQ-inclusive culture as evidenced through our long-standing health and welfare benefits, policies, and practices that facilitate a workplace that substantively works forward for all,” said Gretchen Zech, Arrow’s chief human resources officer.

The CEI criteria used to rate employers are reviewed annually and periodically change, raising the bar to reflect best practices for LGBTQ inclusion and to drive companies to improve their commitment to the community. The criteria fall under four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities

  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families

  • Supporting an inclusive culture; and,

  • Corporate social responsibility

“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.”

More than 1,271 employers participated in the CEI 2021 survey. The full report is available at www.hrc.org/cei.
