Humana has earned a perfect score of 100 in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2019 Corporate Equality Index, the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees. This is the sixth time Humana has received the honor.
The distinction puts Humana among the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”
The CEI rating has four key pillars:
- Non-discrimination policies across business entities
- Equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families
- Internal education and accountability metrics to promote LGBTQ inclusion
- Public commitment to LGBTQ equality
“We’re proud of our culture of inclusion,” said Maria Hughes, Senior Vice President and Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer at Humana. “We’re committed to a healthy work environment, where all associates are comfortable and confident being their whole selves. By fostering an affirming work environment, Humana makes it possible for all associates — including our LGBTQ colleagues — to give 100 percent of their efforts at work as we create innovative and strategic answers to solve the challenges of health care.”
Humana’s leaders are advocates and allies for all associates. President and CEO Bruce Broussard chairs the company’s Executive I&D Council. Humana’s Pride Network Resource Group (NRG) is committed to helping shape an inclusive world – in and outside of Humana.
Pride is a voluntary, self-driven group of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Ally associates from across the organization. The group’s mission is this: Through influence and inspiration, we aim to support personal well-being so that people can live life fully by being who they are.
That commitment to inclusion translates directly to healthier members and healthier communities. By leveraging associate insights, Humana creates personalized experiences that make it easier for people to achieve their best health.
