Transamerica is proud to announce that the company has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. Transamerica has received this accolade every year since 2017.
“Transamerica appreciates being recognized once again by the Human Rights Campaign for our efforts to maintain workplace equality,” said Holly Waters, Chief People, Places & Brand Officer at Transamerica. “Our company is committed to inclusion and diversity because we truly believe that it makes us a stronger, smarter and more creative organization. The wellbeing of all our employees is paramount, and we work diligently to ensure our LGBTQ+ employees receive the support they need and feel empowered to bring their authentic selves to work each day.”
The CEI applies rigorous criteria to rate major businesses on their corporate policies and practices regarding LGBTQ+ inclusion and workforce protections, including non-discrimination policies, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, support for an inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility. Transamerica’s effort to meet all the CEI’s criteria resulted in a perfect score and the designation as a “Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion.”
“Our goal at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation is to work in a spirit of partnership with companies, providing educational resources and leading benchmarking, and collaborating on ways for businesses to support the LGBTQ+ community at a time when we face unprecedented legislative attacks, heightened anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric and physical violence,” said RaShawn “Shawnie” Hawkins, Human Rights Campaign Sr Director of Workplace Equality. “The CEI is an ever-evolving tool—a blueprint that companies can use to show up more effectively in supporting their LGBTQ+ employees and their families.”
Inclusive benefits for LGBTQ+ individuals and their partners, inclusive leadership training, and inclusive philanthropic giving through the Aegon Transamerica Foundation are just a few examples of how Transamerica supports LGBTQ+ employees. Additionally, Transamerica offers Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), including Transamerica PROUD for LGBTQ+ employees and allies. ERGs, which are open to all employees, host regular events to highlight members’ interests and issues and allow members to provide insight and feedback to the company’s leaders.
