Rockwell Automation, the global technology leader committed to making
the world more productive and sustainable, proudly announced that it
received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2019 Corporate Equality
Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate
policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender
and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights
Campaign Foundation. Rockwell Automation joins the ranks of 560 major
U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year.

“Rockwell Automation is proud of our inclusive culture that celebrates
our global employees,” stated Blake Moret, Rockwell Automation Chairman
and CEO. “It is important that our employees are comfortable being who
they are in the workplace and are committed to strengthening our
environment where each employee can and wants to do their best work.”

“The top-scoring companies on this year’s CEI are not only establishing
policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States,
they are applying these policies to their global operations and
impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad
Griffin. “Many of these companies have also become vocal advocates for
equality in the public square, including the dozens that have signed on
to amicus briefs in vital Supreme Court cases and the more than 170 that
have joined HRC’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act. Time and
again, leading American businesses have shown that protecting their
employees and customers from discrimination isn’t just the right thing
to do — it’s also good for business.”

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of
America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality
for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a
world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at
home, at work and in every community.
