[PDF] full report: "Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index 2008"

Author: Human Rights Campaign [USA], Published on: 17 September 2007

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate Equality Index...was devised with corporate diversity leaders, GLBT workplace advocates and employees to provide employers with a roadmap to creating fair workplaces.

[This year] more employers than ever before participated in the CEI survey, and a total of 195 received perfect ratings — a 41 percent increase over the year before...
