TransUnion Earns 100 Percent on 2019 Corporate Equality Index

Top marks on Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Index underscores TransUnion’s commitment to workplace equality

TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.

TransUnion is proud to be an employer of choice, with more than 7,000 associates from many different backgrounds and walks of life. We’re committed to creating an environment where people are excited to come to work, can bring their authentic self, have opportunities to learn and develop, and are recognized for the great work they do. As such, we offer a number of benefits that support equality and inclusion, such as adoption reimbursement, parental leave and flexible time off, and medical coverage for gender confirmation procedures. Associates also have the opportunity to participate in affinity groups.

In line with our commitments, TransUnion signed HRC’s pledge to support the Equality Act. Introduced in Congress earlier this month, the Equality Act provides protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, credit, education and other arenas.

“We’re committed to giving everyone — regardless of identity, background or experience — the opportunity to contribute their talents and bring their authentic selves to work each day,” said Anne Leyden, Executive Vice President, Human Resources at TransUnion. “We encourage everyone to embrace their uniqueness and are thrilled to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for our dedication to equality in the workplace.”

“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. “Many of these companies have also become vocal advocates for equality in the public square, including the dozens that have signed on to amicus briefs in vital Supreme Court cases and the more than 170 that have joined HRC’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act. Time and again, leading American businesses have shown that protecting their employees and customers from discrimination isn’t just the right thing to do -- it’s also good for business.”

The 2019 CEI evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. TransUnion’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
