For the second consecutive year, L3Harris has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” by The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), receiving a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI).
HRC recently released the 2021 list, which rates companies based on 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.
“We are honored to again receive this recognition from The Human Rights Campaign,” said Bill Brown, Chairman and CEO. “We will continue our commitment to the LGBTQ community and provide our LGBTQ employees with the support they need to not only succeed, but also thrive at L3Harris. I am proud of the work we’ve done as a company to establish a culture where every employee is treated with respect.”
In the past year, L3Harris took the following actions to support the LGBTQ community both at work and in local communities:
- During Pride Month 2020, L3Harris proudly flew the rainbow flag at several offices across the country, including Corporate Headquarters in Melbourne, FL. L3Harris also changed its company logos on social media to the rainbow logo to show support during Pride Month and published an employee spotlight gallery honoring LGBTQ employees.
- L3Harris partnered with Out & Equal for their annual workplace summit, sponsoring a virtual booth; members of the Pride Employee Resource Group (ERG) attended educational seminars.
- The L3Harris Pride ERG hosted LGBTQ and Transgender 101 Training workshops, which offered opportunities for employees to learn about issues that the LGBTQ workforce faces and enabled allies to become advocates for change.
The L3Harris Pride ERG takes an active role in driving an inclusive culture. The mission of the Pride ERG is to promote an inclusive, supportive and safe environment for all employees regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression in support of L3Harris Technologies’ commitment to global inclusion.
