Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index at Lendlease
Lendlease began participating in the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index (CEI) survey in 2014, our first foray into diversity and inclusion-focused measurement. In the early stages of showing more visible support for our LGBT employees, we knew participation in the survey would help us identify ways to further our commitment to LGBT Inclusion.
We scored 70 on our first submission, which was a great result, but it showed us we could do more to have a more inclusive workplace for our LGBT employees, so we took additional steps which included:
- Equal health coverage for transgender individuals without exclusion for medically necessary care
- Anonymous employee surveys conducted on an annual/semi-annual basis allow employees the option to identify as LGBT
- Supplier diversity program with demonstrated effort to include certified LGBT suppliers
- Demonstrated public support for LGBT equality under the law through local, state or federal legislation or initiatives
Two years after scoring 70, we scored 100 and have maintained a 100 score for 3 consecutive years.
