Airbnb has scored 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), earning us the designation as a “Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality” for the second time. We are honored to be named among a record-breaking 517 US companies, representing a 25-percent increase over the total for 2016.
The Foundation is the educational arm of the Human Rights Campaign, America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer equality. Their CEI is the national benchmarking tool which evaluates LGBT-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.
The CEI is an important tool for understanding LGBTQ equality at Airbnb, as measurements are not included in the government-mandated Employee Information Report (EEO-1). Read the full HRC announcement and press release here.
