For the seventh year in a row, United Airlines ranks as one of the best places to work for LGBTQ equality on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index

A commitment to authenticity and inclusion is a core value at United Airlines, cultivating a workplace where people of all walks of life can thrive as they help connect customers to world. This commitment has earned the company its seventh consecutive perfect 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and a spot on the organization’s list of “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”

The airline offers several programs that promote LGBTQ inclusion and awareness. For example, United sponsors an LGBTQ-focused business resource group, EQUAL, which provides ongoing networking, advocacy and outreach opportunities for its members, and consults with senior leadership on issues of equality.

Michael Quiello, United’s vice president of corporate safety serves as executive sponsor of EQUAL. “As a global company serving a diverse range of communities, the richness of our own different backgrounds, cultures, experiences and ideas brings enormous value to the organization, and I’m proud to be a part of a team that celebrates this,” said Quiello. “The Human Rights Campaign’s recognition seven years running is a powerful validation that we’re continuing down the right path.”

In 2017, United employees and leaders participated in events and activities in several cities around the U.S., including Chicago, San Francisco, Denver, Houston, and Washington D.C that foster awareness about LGBTQ issues. Additionally, United has taken a proactive stance in advocating on behalf of the LGBTQ community.

United is proud to join the other select companies that have earned the distinction from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for supporting the LGBTQ community in civil rights policies and practices, and workplace inclusion.
