In 2013, following a 60/100 score on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index, we immediately recognized an opportunity to create a more inclusive workplace for our LGBTQ employees.
We know that by embracing diversity and promoting inclusion, we become a stronger company. So, following our low scoring results in 2013, we partnered with the Human Rights Campaign to identify how we could improve our support of LBGTQ employees. In addition to finding opportunities to make more inclusive adjustments to benefits and improving messaging around our offerings, we launched the Pride & Allies Employee Resource Group to provide a collaborative space for LGBT employees and allies to network, share experiences, and – most importantly – have fun.
Our commitment to making improvements paid off. In 2017, for the fourth year in a row, T-Mobile was proud to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) with a 100% score on the Corporate Equality Index. Our Pride & Allies Resource Group has grown to approximately 3,500 members and this year will participate in 53 Pride celebrations across 28 states. T-Mobile is continuing to build critical awareness around issues important to our LGBTQ employees, letting everyone know that T-Mobile is a great place to work and do business regardless of your sexual orientation or gender identity.
