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.
