January 29, 2022

Amtrak received a rating of 90 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index for 2022.

Union Pacific scored 100 percent and Norfolk Southern received a 75 percent score.

The index is described as a national bench-marking tool on corporate policies, practices and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees.  It is scored out of 100 with the rating assessing LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

To earn high marks, companies must meet the CEI’s criteria in four categories: Workforce protections of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression; inclusive benefits and health plans; supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility; and responsible citizenship.
