EA and Microsoft recognised as "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality"

Given a 100 per cent rating by the Human Rights Campaign

Both EA and Microsoft have received a 100 per cent rating from the Human Rights Campaign, earning them a place in its "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality" list.

"Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2013 Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT employees," explains the official website.

Last year EA was awarded a score of 90 per cent, and Microsoft 100 per cent.

“I am very pleased that EA has scored a 100 per cent rating and been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign in a year where the company has taken significant steps to remain inclusive,” said EA's chief talent officer Gabrielle Toledano.

“EA has made changes to our medical benefits, been involved in LGBT events in our community and taken a public stance against the Defense of Marriage Act. EA champions diversity with a work environment where everyone feels welcome and can be themselves.”
