The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has awarded Subaru another perfect score on the organization's annual scorecard on LGBTQ workplace equality. This marks the fourth year in a row that the automaker has received this important accolade.

The Corporate Equality Index, or CEI, is regarded as the premier benchmarking survey and report in the United States on corporate policies, practices, and environments focused on LGBTQ workplace equality. The CEI is administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

In garnering this distinction, Subaru is among nearly 700 major U.S. businesses that earned the highest possible rating in 2020. As a result of the perfect score, Subaru is again designated as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality, that our Fitchburg drivers can't get enough of. In rating companies, the CEI considers a number of criteria in five categories:

  • Non-discrimination policies
  • Employment benefits
  • demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion
  • Public commitment to LGBTQ equality
  • Responsible corporate citizenship

The awarding organization, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, is the educational component of the largest civil rights organization in the United States dedicated to achieving equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation strives for a world in which LGBTQ people are "embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community." Subaru exemplifies a business dedicated to the equal rights of all employees, including those in the LGBTQ community.

Subaru of America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Subaru Corporation. The company markets and distributes Subaru vehicles, parts, and accessories in the United States. The company currently has a network of over 630 retailers from coast-to-coast in the country. In addition, the company maintains five employee resource groups that contribute to Subaru diversity, inclusion, and equity, business strategy.
