Live Nation Named One Of Top Workplaces For LGBTQ Equality By Human Rights Campaign
Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s leading live entertainment company, has been recognized as a top workplace for LGBTQ equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people.
For the second year in a row, Live Nation earned a perfect score of 100 on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which is the nation’s premier benchmarking tool that recognizes organizations that practice LGBTQ equality in:
· Transgender Benefits & Wellness
· Domestic Partner Benefits
· Culture & Engagement
· Corporate & employee policies
· Learning & Development
· Public engagement with the LGBTQ community
“Live music has a unique ability to connect and unite people from all different backgrounds, and we promote that same sense of community and belonging for our employees at Live Nation,” said Michael Rapino, President and CEO, Live Nation Entertainment. “We’re always striving to create a more inclusive and equitable culture, and are proud to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign once again.”
“The top-scoring companies on this year’s CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.
This recognition is the latest in a series of third-party acknowledgments for Live Nation’s industry practices and workplace culture. Live Nation has also been recognized as one ofLinkedIn’s Top Companies, Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies, Fortune’s Future 50, a certified Great Place to Work, as well as the top donor to veteran’s organization Vet Tix.
