Rockwell Collins (now Collins Aerospace) and Transamerica Corp. were among four Iowa companies designated a" Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality" in the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) released yesterday by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation at https://www.hrc.org/campaigns/corporate-equality-index.

The HRC Foundation - the educational arm of the nation's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization - strengthened criteria for the 2018 index in the most rigorous scorecard to date. In all, 571 companies were designated a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality based on detailed criteria in four categories: non-discrimination policies, employment benefits, supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility including public commitment to LGBTQ equality, and responsible citizenship.

Transamerica received a rating of 100 while the former Rockwell Collins received a rating of 85. Principal Financial Group and Wellmark, Inc., both of Des Moines, also received ratings of 100. The average score for companies and law firms based in Iowa was 96 percent.

"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 in a release. "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."

Other key findings revealed in the 2019 CEI:

* The number of U.S. employees with a corporate nondiscrimination policy protecting them from sexual orientation or gender identity discrimination is 16.8 million.

* Gender identity is now part of nondiscrimination policies at 85 percent of Fortune 500 companies, up from just 3 percent in 2002.

* More than 500 major employers have adopted supportive inclusion guidelines for transgender workers who are transitioning.

* 136 Fortune 500 companies were given unofficial scores based on publicly available information.
