E*TRADE Receives Perfect Score on 2019 Corporate Equality Index


E*TRADE earns top marks for LGBTQ equality from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation with employee resource groups, comprehensive benefits coverage, and workforce protection

E*TRADE Financial Corporation (ETFC) today announced it received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality.

According to the HRC, employers earning top ratings took concrete steps to ensure greater equality for LGBTQ workers and their families. As part of its evaluation, the HRC considered E*TRADE’s LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.

“Inclusion is rooted in E*TRADE’s DNA, as we leveled the playing field more than three decades ago by bringing online trading to the retail investor,” said Karl Roessner, Chief Executive Officer at E*TRADE Financial. “This ethos lives on today as we foster an environment that embraces diverse viewpoints to help serve our customers, employees, and shareholders. We are honored to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for our focus on making E*TRADE a great place to work.”
