American Airlines gets 14th perfect score in corporate equality index

American Airlines said the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has given it the highest possible rating in the 2016 Corporate Equality Index (CEI).

American was the only airline to achieve a perfect score when the CEI launched in 2002, and is one of only a small number of corporations to do so every year since.

The CEI is a nationally recognized benchmark that examines the top workplaces in the United States and their inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and their allies. companies like American that earn the top CEI score of 100 percent also are named the “Best Places to Work” in the US

The Human Rights Campaign is dedicated to promoting and ensuring public understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues through innovative education and communication strategies.

American Airlines Group is the holding company for American Airlines. Together with regional partners operating as American Eagle, American offers an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to nearly 350 destinations in more than 50 countries.
