Booz Allen Hamilton has achieved a 100 percent rating on the 2011 Corporate Equality Index and Best Places to Work Survey, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. This is the second year that Booz Allen has achieved a perfect rating. This year, 337 businesses achieved the top rating of 100 percent, compared to 305 with top ratings in the 2010 Corporate Equality Index - an increase of more than 10 percent. The number of employers rated from the first CEI to the present has also expanded from 319 to 615.
Booz Allen continues to maintain an inclusive work environment by supporting various programs that champion diversity and professional development such as GLOBE, the firm's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Employees Forum, now comprised of 11 regional chapters. The Corporate Equality Index was released Oct. 4.
McLean-based Mark McLane, Director of Diversity, said, 'Diversity is integral to who we are at Booz Allen, and our inclusion on this list is further evidence of our commitment to value people from all backgrounds, across all cultures, and regardless of sexual orientation or gender. We recognize that diverse teams brainstorm the best solutions for problems, and that our people can serve our clients best when they can be authentic in the workplace.'
