MGM Resorts and International Game Technology (IGT) applauded their placement on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s latest Corporate Equality Index, the 2022 Corporate Equality Index.

MGM, IGT among 842 companies with Perfect Score

MGM and IGT join a record-breaking 842 US-based enterprises who earned a perfect CEI score this year, with MGM scoring 100 for the 11th straight year. The CEI assesses businesses based on precise criteria related to four fundamental pillars: anti-discrimination policies across business entities; equal benefits for LGBTQ+ employees and their families; fostering an inclusive culture; and corporate social responsibility.

“IGT’s accreditation as a ‘Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality’ by the HRC Foundation demonstrates our dedication to providing a welcoming, egalitarian, and empowering work environment for LGBTQ+ employees worldwide. 

Quotes from the Press Release

I would like to express my gratitude to our nearly 11,000 workers worldwide, particularly our members of pride in IGT, who, in collaboration with the office of diversity and inclusion, embraced and activated IGT’s fundamental values and contributed to this historic success,” stated Vincent Sadusky, IGT CEO.

“Diversity, equity, and inclusion are ingrained in our company’s culture, core principles, and business practices,” said Jyoti Chopra, MGM’s chief people, inclusion, and sustainability officer.

“We exhibit this devotion through our commitment to a diverse workforce and the superior service we deliver to our visitors from every corner and culture of the globe. We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts to advance equality within our organization as well as in our local and regional communities.

“We aim to proudly focus on what matters as we work collaboratively with our employees and partners to contribute to the creation of a world that values inclusiveness and respect for all people.”

“Twenty years ago, when the Human Rights Campaign Foundation launched the Corporate Equality Index, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers on the factory floor and in corporate headquarters, in large cities and small towns, would have access to the policies and benefits necessary to thrive and live authentic lives,” explained Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign senior vice president of programs, research, and training.

“We are delighted that the Corporate Equality Index opened the way for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and throughout the world to achieve that reality. However, there is still work to be done, which is why we are lifting the bar once more in order to promote more equal workplaces and a brighter future for LGBTQ+ employees worldwide.”
