BALTIMORE, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Transamerica announces today that it received a score of 100 percent from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation on its annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The index measures lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality based on a national benchmarking survey and report of corporate policies and practices. Transamerica is proud to have received this honor for two consecutive years.
“Diversity is a vital part of Transamerica, and we strive to ensure an environment of equality and inclusiveness,” said Julie Tschida Brown, Chief People Officer at Transamerica. “Receiving a score of 100 percent for two consecutive years from the Human Rights Campaign validates our commitment to diversity and the well-being of all our employees.”
