Philadelphia, PA – The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia has earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the fifth consecutive year. The Philadelphia Fed received the foundation’s Equality 100 Award: Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion for satisfying all of CEI’s criteria, including non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility.

CEI is the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has revised CEI scoring criteria several times to keep focus on the emerging best practices in LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion and to meet the needs of the LGBTQ+ community over time.

The full CEI report is available here.

“Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the Philadelphia Fed’s core values,” said Rebecca Robinson, vice president, diversity and inclusion officer, and assistant director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion. “We are proud of our CEI scores and are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming organization where everyone can thrive, contribute, and realize their fullest potential.”

The Philadelphia Fed is dedicated to continuing these conversations and to participating in future CEI surveys. Read more about how diversity is vital to the Philadelphia Fed’s mission to encourage economic growth and financial stability.
