Nike, Apple, Kimptons Top HRC’s 2012 Corporate Equality Index

The Human Rights Campaign  has released its tenth annual Corporate Equality Index, ranking top companies and law firms based on their policies regarding LGBT employees.

The Index ranks Fortune magazine’s 1,000 largest publicly traded businesses and American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms, as well as an any private-sector employer with 500 or more employees who requests to participate.

Among the corporations scoring a perfect 100% was American Airlines, Kimpton Hotels, Microsoft, American Express, Nike, Apple, Ford, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs.

Hey, no one said scoring well on the Index meant you weren’t a douchebag.

Volkswagen (90%), JetBlue (90%), Amazon (90%) and Boeing (85%) all represented nicely.

But if this were Calc II, Verizon (20%), Hasbro (25%) and Sherman Williams (15%) would have to take the class over.

    Wow, Nike huh? Maybe if Nike’s that supportive of Human Right, they really need to think about how they have squeezed third-world-countries’ labor like from mine to make those shoes that can only bought by Nike for 2-3 bucks and then get retail sold for $60-90. So I guess: a right to a gay dude to have no discrimination at work is more important than couple extra bucks for those poor mothers who’ve work like slaves just to feed her entire family?
