"GoDaddy takes great pride in offering an inclusive workplace that encourages employees to bring their authentic selves to work," said Monica Bailey, Chief People Officer for GoDaddy. "We actively work to educate our employees and managers on recognizing unconscious bias, to attract a diverse pool of candidates, and to infuse opportunities for connection between our employees. Our CEI score is a testament to GoDaddy's focus on developing a culture that embraces the differences among us and champions people for who they are."

GoDaddy earned the designation of Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality by satisfying the CEI's criteria of adopting LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including offering anti-harassment training and including sexual orientation and gender identity protections in its non-discrimination workplace protections, providing inclusive domestic partner benefits and transgender-inclusive health care benefits, maintaining organizational LGBTQ competency, and publicly supporting the LGBTQ community.

"The top-scoring companies on this year's CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores," said HRC President Chad Griffin.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
