Praxair has been named to the 2018 Corporate Equity Index (CEI) with a perfect score of 100% for the second consecutive year.

The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

The report, which rates over 900 businesses, evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programmes, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. As a result of satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria, Praxair has also been designated a ‘Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”

Praxair Chief Diversity Officer Vanessa Abrahams-John noted, “We continue to implement programmes, policies and training globally that foster an inclusive environment for all of our employees, which has culminated in a score of 100% on this important index.” He continued, “Receiving this external recognition for the second year in a row is a testament to the value we place on diversity and inclusion.”
