When Equinix set the goal of becoming a leading employer for the LGBTQ+ community, we knew it would require being open, listening to our employees and external constituents, getting feedback and making changes.
Our Equinix Employee Connection Networks (EECN), are created around an identity or community that is underrepresented at Equinix, has faced historical discrimination or share unique challenges. They are led by committed volunteer employees who are instrumental in providing advocacy, guidance, and accountability and we are profoundly grateful for the leadership they provide and the work they accomplish. It is through the contributions of our EECN volunteer leaders that we can continue our journey to become a leading employer for the LGBTQ+ community.
PrideConnect, one of nine EECNs at Equinix, was established to create a supportive, positive space for dialogue, learning and allyship within our LGBTQ community. It was through this group of dedicated volunteers that we established our goal of becoming a leading employer for the LGBTQ community. Today we are proud to announce we have come a step closer to that goal, earning a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Corporate Equality Index(CEI).
The HRC's Corporate Equality Index is a national benchmarking tool on corporate policies, practices and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees. Participation in the CEI was just the kind of feedback and accountability we were seeking. It was a critical benchmark to help track our progress. We are honored to join 842 top scoring companies also dedicated to establishing and implementing comprehensive policies, benefits and practices that ensure greater equity for LGBTQ workers and their families.
